As a charitable cultural organization, FIN Atlantic International Film Festival simply couldn't offer such a broad range of initiatives without the skills and commitment of our great volunteers!
Celebrating 40 years in 2020, FIN Atlantic International Film Festival began as a tiny grassroots operation and has blossomed into one of Canada’s premier film festivals. Our year-round celebration of films and film making includes:
FIN Atlantic International Film Festival – Presentation platform for 200+ independent films from Nova Scotia, Canada, and around the world
FIN Partners – Canada’s top international co-production/co-financing market, featuring 1-2-1 meetings, keynotes, and panels with a focus on developing Nova Scotian content with regional, national, and international industry players
FIN Kids – A touring film program including hands-on workshops with regional film professionals and a youth film competition to strengthen cultural education for young people across Nova Scotia
FIN Outdoor – Free summertime outdoor screenings taking place at locations across HRM
FIN Makers – Development and recognition initiatives to nurture Nova Scotia’s film industry
FIN Campus – Campus Movie Night and other post-secondary targeted initiatives to strengthen and expand awareness of regional filmmaking
The FIN Atlantic International Film Festival's mission is to enrich cultural and economic life in Atlantic Canada, by championing the vision and voice of the global cinema experience.
Offering a first look at the best international films of the festival season, FIN Atlantic International Film Festival is also a champion of local filmmakers. We attract some of the biggest players in film, media and music from around the world. 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, FIN depends heavily on its strong ties to the surrounding and thriving arts community.
