Several films screened in competition at MIFF have gone on to become memorable cultural touchstones, including Searching for Sugarman, The Horde, and Magnificent Presence. MIFF takes great pride in ensuring every screening is a major event. Every film in the main competition may be represented by two delegates (director and actor/actress), each of whom will have the cost of travel and hotel accommodations covered by the festival.
