What do 29 local businesses, 25 departments at StFX, 18 religious and educational organizations, 15 social justice and environment groups, various levels of government, health providers, the media, arts organizations, financial institutions, and individuals have in common?  THEY ARE ALL SPONSORS OF THE 8TH ANNUAL ANTIGONISH INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL. AIFF

Festivalgoers and organizers are very grateful to the over 100 sponsors of the festival who provide financial backing for and promotion of the festival to their staff, customers, students, and friends.  Their support enables the price for a festival pass to remain unchanged at $15 regular admission, $5 for students or people who are unwaged, for access to 28 films over two days.

Find out why they give their support by coming to the film festival, Friday and Saturday, October 17 and 18 at these venues:  the Peoples’ Place Library, the Cineplex Capitol Theatre, and the Town Council Chambers.  Having all three conveniently located along Main Street, within a minute’s walk, adds to the festival feeling as people stroll from one venue to another, some enjoying refreshments for sale from vendors at the library.
