Welcome to the 10th annual Antigonish International Film Festival (AIFF) bringing you the best documentaries from around the world. The festival has grown and thrived thanks to all of our sponsors, volunteers, and many attendees. Over these ten years we have shown more than 300 films to an audience of over 14,300.
We wish to salute the thirty original sponsors who joined us in this venture in 2007 and are still with us in 2016. The names of these loyal sponsors are in bold typeface on the sponsors’ pages at the front of the program.
AIFF has made a difference in our community, encouraging efforts to confront such issues as climate change, availability of local food, the connections be-tween art and health, problems with the prison system, needs of refugees; the list goes on . . .
This year’s festival is no exception, showcasing the types of films you have come to expect: award-winning, hard-hitting, challenging, heart-warming, beautiful, fun, _____ (fill in your own adjective).
In celebration of our tenth anniversary, we have a bonus presentation of an amazing film on Sunday afternoon: Human (2015) from France by director Yann Arthus-Bertrand beginning at 1 pm in Nicholson Hall 151 on the StFX campus. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see this beautiful, wide-ranging and deeply moving film on the big screen. Please check out the synopsis in the FILMS list.
We invite you to join the celebration as we wish AIFF a HAPPY 10th ANNIVERSARY, and many more!
