Myrtle Beach International Film Festival Brings Silver-Screen Gems to the Carolina Coast

Article Thumbnail Image

Beyond its location, the MBIFF sets itself apart from other film festivals with its panel of judges — seven movie buffs from all walks of life and a range of occupational fields, rather than the typical, strictly-filmmaker makeup. As a result, festival attendees are treated to films that the average viewer considers to be entertaining and worthwhile. The bottom line, according to the festival’s organizers: If the film is great, it gets in.

In addition to the screenings, the festival features a number of other events and gatherings over its six-day run, including networking events and film-related forums. The schedule of events and screenings — primarily held at the Stone Theatres Grand 14 at The Market Common — includes:
