Welcome to Arlington International Film Festival

Arlington International Film Festival (AIFF) is an award winning organization with its mission being to foster appreciation for different cultures by exploring the lives of people around the globe through independent film. In 2013, AIFF was awarded the Alan McClennen Community Arts Award by the Arlington Center for the Arts, the Gold Star Award by the Massachusetts Cultural Council and Person of the Year award by the Arlington Avocado Blog. Through the founding of AIFF, the mission has also focused on enriching the community and broadening the view of our world and ourselves. Utilizing the power of collaboration, AIFF has engaged and involved students, volunteers, businesses and town leaders, fellow arts organizations, and of course, filmmakers and directors from around the world. AIFF believes that the arts are here to connect us, to communicate across boundaries, and touch our common humanity.
