The Atlantic Film Festival is an eight-day celebration of film, media, and music from around the world. It's a festival that turns Halifax, Nova Scotia – a charming and historic coastal city – into an international Mecca for the arts, abuzz with filmmakers, industry types, and film lovers. This year's event celebrates 35 years of the Festival and takes place from September 17-24.

Offering a first look at the best international films of the festival season, the Atlantic Film Festival attracts some of the biggest players in film, media, and music around the world. A champion of local filmmakers, all of our film selections are chosen with our community in mind and our special events are designed to bring us all together.

A not-for-profit organization, the Atlantic Film Festival began as a tiny, grassroots operation in St. John's, Newfoundland in 1981, relocating to Halifax the following year. Just three decades later, the Festival has blossomed into one of Canada's premier film festivals. Whether for industry folk, unabashed film lovers or curious onlookers, the Festival offers a slew of opportunities to engage through film.

Today's Atlantic Film Festival is now a year-round celebration, growing beyond our cornerstone event in September to include: ViewFinders: Atlantic Film Festival for Youth, AFF Outdoor Film Experience and Strategic Partners.
