To Our Wonderful MIFF Community,

Thank you for supporting us over the past 15 years! We are working on many changes for the festival and are extraordinarily excited to continue as a platform for Midwest filmmakers. Please help us in welcoming our new Executive Director, Erica Duffy! She is a founder and managing partner of Camera Ambassador, a full service rental and production house based in Chicago. She is also a producer who has worked with clients such as MTV News, Vic Mensa, and Fox’s Empire. We are looking forward to bringing her fresh ideas to the filmmaking community.

We will be taking a few months to rebrand the Midwest Independent Film Festival, with full intention to continue showcasing Midwest filmmakers. As a volunteer-based organization, we welcome your hands on deck, to build a new vision for 2020. If you would like to join us as a volunteer or sponsor, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Erica at We would also love to hear what you want to see MIFF do in the future! We thank you for your patience as we take time off to create a better festival for our members!
