MBIFF-9th

 

Filmmakers from around the world showcase their work, many as a world premiere, at the 9th Annual Myrtle Beach International Film Festival (MBIFF). Hailed as a ground breaking film festival, MBIFF continues to serve as a venue for up-and-coming filmmakers as well as seasoned professionals.

This year’s festival takes place from Wednesday, April 23 through Saturday, April 26, 2014 at Carmike Cinema 17 Broadway at the Beach.
