Become a friend of the Montreal International Film Festival

Montreal International Film Festival

The 2021 edition of the Montreal International Film Festival (MIFF) will take place from August 16-22. Founded by the HELM Foundation, the festival’s mission is to emphasize and create awareness of the following three aspects of the film industry: the creative process, education, and the spirit of collaboration within the industry. 

The HELM Foundation is dedicated towards the development of creative young individuals and future filmmakers through the funding of scholarships, creative projects and programs for underprivileged youth. In this way, more opportunities will become open to the next generation of people who want to express their creativity through filmmaking and film production.
