is to celebrate the diversity of our world through independent films that educate, enrich and engage audiences.
is to offer a year-round cultural resource for the Monadnock Region through our annual film festival, community film screenings and our Screenwriting In Schools program that we offer to high school students.
Named as "Up and Coming Film Fest" by New Hampshire Magazine, the Monadnock International Film Festival (MONIFF) showcases high quality independent cinema every April for three days in the beautiful Monadnock Region, known for its vibrant arts culture and Mt. Monadnock, one of the world's most climbed mountains. MONIFF features award-winning films on the festival circuit, both domestic and foreign, along with premieres of regionally produced films by New Hampshire and New England filmmakers. The highlight of the festival every year is the presentation of the Jonathan Daniels Award, given to a filmmaker whose work fuses social and/or political awareness with artistic excellence, and encompasses Jonathan Daniels courage by telling stories of hope, redemption, and the triumph of the human spirit.
