Get ready for the 2022 Montreal Independent Film Festival – Film Daily


Film festivals bring together some of the world’s greatest talent and showcase it. Festivals are a place where fans, critics and artists come together to celebrate the magic of cinema. The past two years have been difficult for film festivals around the world, but the Montreal Independent Film Festival is back in force with a hybrid approach for 2022.

For years, the Montreal Independent Film Festival has tapped into the entire spectrum of the world of cinema. The festival welcomes Oscar winners, Hollywood stars and emerging independent talent from around the world. Few festivals offer the same level of variety, and it’s partly for this reason that the Montreal Independent Film Festival has a special place in the hearts of filmmakers.

For Spring 2022, MIFF is taking a hybrid approach to its festivities. There will be in-person film screenings at Cinéma du Parc, but festival-goers can also take in all the excitement online thanks to the Montreal Independent Film Channel. Get ready to experience everything the 2022 festival has to offer by finding out all the details here.
