The Muscatine Independent Film Festival Packages
The Muscatine Independent Film Festival (MIFF) is a showcase of Short Films and is designed to encourage and acknowledge the creative efforts involved with respect to this genre. Participants will enjoy a diverse array of film genres to choose from throughout the weekend. In addition to “red carpet” receptions, Q&A sessions, and networking after parties, visitors will appreciate the upscale amenities of the Merrill Hotel, nestled alongside the Mississippi River in the historic downtown Muscatine district.
MIFF is very supportive of local/regional artists, as evidenced by the “Best Iowa Made Film Category”. It is hoped that providing an awards venue will inspire their creativity and innovative artistic media. This event is also an effort to provide Midwest residents and visiting artists with an engaging weekend of entertainment.
For the 2018 event, we are going to have a special focus on screening documentaries on Sunday, which will feature a screening from the China Window Group, a concept instigated from our unique connection to China and its current president Xi Xi Peng.
And, this year’s event is truly going to be embracing the color purple, as we screen a movie and documentary based on the true story of Muscatine’s most infamous former resident, Norman Baker.
The Merrill will give you an opportunity to enjoy a 4 Diamond hotel right on the Mississippi River with convenient access to the screenings and downtown Muscatine amenities. The all-inclusive packages will allow you have a hassle free and luxurious weekend experience. Packages include overnight accommodations, "red carpet” receptions, all access VIP passes, Saturday night award dinner buffet, and valet parking. The films will screen on the 6th floor overlooking the river.
