Maine International Film Festival (MIFF)
Since its inception in 1998, the Maine International Film Festival has been dedicated to bringing the best of American, international and locally-made independent cinema to Waterville. Held over 10 days each July, MIFF shows more than 100 films, presents Q&As and panel discussions with guest filmmakers, introduces world premieres and attracts audiences from throughout New England, across the country and the world. Film screenings are held at the historic Waterville Opera House and Railroad Square Cinema.
Railroad Square Cinema
Founded in 1978, Railroad Square Cinema has been named Maine’s “Best Theater” in several statewide polls and surveys. It was also honored by the Sundance Institute as one of 12 inaugural theaters in the country invited to participate in its Art House Project. Railroad Square showcases a variety of American and international films, serves as a key venue for the Maine International Film Festival, and is a vital hub for Maine arts and cultural events.
