Mission / description Held at the prestigious Reid's Palace, MFF can boast unequivocally that it is the festival with the world's greatest view.
“The Madeira Film Festival is non – competitive. As opposed to awarding filmmakers a prize each delegate will receive the ‘Laurissilva Ambassador Award’ thus helping to create awareness and recognition of Madeira’s endemic forest. Thanks to the coveted locations and unique atmosphere, MFF has become the key annual film event on the island, with the 6th edition concluding in April 2017 the odyssey continues yet the remit remains: To screen films whereby the predominate content venerates Madeira’s Laurissilva Forest. To inspire & nurture local talent. To challenge & stimulate the audience by virtue of audio – visual communication. Filmmakers personally present their work at the majestic Municipal Theatre in Funchal. The Madeira Film Festival has been privileged to screen such filmic repertoires such as Beasts Of The Southern Wild, The Hunt, The Hunter, Chasing Ice, Le Quattro Volte, Post Tenebras Lux amongst others plus musical concerts from The Kyle Eastwood Band, Maria de Medeiros, Escondido & Phamie Gow.”

madeirafilmfestival attended as a guest in 2015

5.0
/ 5

I have attended the Madeira Film Festival twice, once in 2012 and again in 2015. What strikes me most is the intimate and exclusive atmosphere which seems to engulf the delegates. It is a relatively small film festival which is good or bad depending on your disposition but forging relationships is very easy to do at the Madeira Film Festival. Aitken Around 2 years ago
