See You at MNFF8, August 24-28, 2022!


After a spectacular five days of films, festivities and fun, MNFF7, the "comeback" Festival, is now in the books. We were thrilled with all the filmmakers who came to Middlebury to represent their beautiful films and mingle with our wonderful audiences. We were delighted to see so many community members thoroughly enjoying themselves despite the many challenges we all faced.  So, thank you to everyone, from our sponsors, led by our Presenting Sponsor IPJ Real Estate, to our donors, our venue, hospitality and Merch Store partners, our volunteers, our host families, our superb MNFF team and, above all, to our cherished filmmakers whose courage, perseverance and vision we will forever salute.  And if you couldn't make it this year, we do hope to see you here in lovely Middlebury for the 8th Annual Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival, August 24-28, 2022!  Mark those calendars!
