We will be glad to welcome you on September 25 in Bristol Valley Theater at 151 South Main Street, Naples, NY 14512 at 7 pm.

It is the mission of the MIFF to support the work of talented and dedicated filmmakers and to share their work so that it may inspire, educate, and transform youth and professionals in the youth work field. Our main target group is the generation of developing young filmmakers but we are very delighted at every entry. The essence of this success is to motivate common activity among young inland filmmakers and other international organizations taking part in the audiovisual program.

The Meters Film Festival (MIFF) is a not for profit organisation (USA) that has been set up to give audiences a chance to see films that might not be available in other local public venues, while also inspiring local film makers with access to workshops led by leading industry experts.

We support variety and so our film choices will never follow a set genre. This will allow audiences to sample cinema that they have either never considered or perhaps haven’t had the chance to experience before. We are hoping to give filmmakers, young and old, more reason to pick up their equipment and make the most of what they have. With the ability to film on your phone and the cost of professional equipment dropping constantly, it’s never been easier to make a film.

We welcome film and music submissions of all genres: Romance, Horror, Comedy, Thriller, Action, Sci-fi.
