Our Introduction

Welcome to the Mpumalanga International Film Festival!

The Mpumalanga International Film Festival (MIFF) is an annual celebration of the art of filmmaking, dedicated to showcasing the rich diversity of talent in the world of cinema. Set against the breathtaking backdrop of Mpumalanga, South Africa, this esteemed event brings together filmmakers, industry professionals, and film enthusiasts from around the globe.

At MIFF, we believe in the power of film to entertain, educate, and inspire. Our festival provides a platform for both established and emerging filmmakers to showcase their work and connect with industry experts, fostering creativity, collaboration, and cultural exchange. We curate a captivating selection of films encompassing various genres, themes, and perspectives, ensuring a truly immersive cinematic experience for our audiences.



What sets MIFF apart is its commitment to showcasing the beauty and diversity of Mpumalanga, a region known for its stunning landscapes, vibrant cultures, and rich heritage. Our festival not only screens films but also offers attendees the opportunity to explore the enchanting surroundings through curated tours, workshops, and interactive sessions. From the majestic Kruger National Park to the awe-inspiring Blyde River Canyon, MIFF creates a holistic experience that celebrates both film and the natural wonders of the region.

In addition to film screenings, MIFF hosts a range of exciting events, including panel discussions, Q&A sessions, masterclasses, and networking opportunities. These engagements provide invaluable insights into the art and craft of filmmaking, as well as a platform for meaningful discussions on industry trends, challenges, and innovations.

MIFF is proud to support and promote local talent, serving as a vital catalyst for the growth of the South African film industry. Through our partnerships with filmmakers, production companies, and industry organizations, we strive to create opportunities for aspiring filmmakers to showcase their work on an international stage, fostering collaborations and opening doors to new possibilities.
