The Atlantic Film Festival is an eight-day celebration of film, video and music from around the world. It is a festival that turns Halifax —a charming and historic seaside city — into an international mecca for the arts, abuzz with filmmakers, industry types and film lovers. What began in 1981 as a tiny, grassroots operation in St. John’s, Newfoundland has blossomed into one of Canada’s premiere film festivals.  The cornerstone September Festival includes year-round industry and community events for every taste.
