From documentaries to short films and narratives, there’s something for everyone to enjoy during the 7th Annual Monadnock International Film Festival being held April 26-28. MONIFF for short, this film festival brings domestic and foreign films to the Monadnock region, and enriches the creative arts community year after year. Partnering with different venues and businesses, MONIFF creates an entire weekend of praise to independent filmmakers and their craft.
Get ready for three days packed full of events. MONIFF has curated a collection of deep and evocative films, including award-winning films like The Silence of Others, Who Will Write Our History, The Spirit Seam, and GRIT. With a variety of Festival day and single show passes, there is an opportunity for everyone to participate.
Our classic Monadnock region venues enhance the experience, offering big screen as well as cozy, intimate settings. Well known not only for its vintage aesthetic but live shows, the Colonial Theatre in downtown Keene will have showings all weekend of feature documentaries, short films and more. Stick around after some films for discussions! Also located downtown is the Hannah Grimes Center, a unique smorgasbord of creative work space, marketplace, event center and programs. Utilizing the space, MONIFF has panel discussion going on at the Hannah Grimes Center.
While still in Keene enjoying the festival, head over to Keene State College’s Putnam Theatre for more showings along with some Q&A with the creators. On Sunday morning you might catch some of the free and ticketed showings of films at Keene Cinemas before heading to the Peterborough Community Theatre. This independently owned theatre is not only the oldest movie theater in the state, but also a great place to see all of the highlighted films from the festival at the Best of Fest event!
