MIFF turns 15

Maine International Film Festival returns to Waterville

WATERVILLE When we think about movies in the summertime, more often than not, we tend to think of big-budget blockbusters. And with good reason: explosion-laden action epics, superhero sequels and movie star vehicles abound at this time of year.

But that's not all there is. Here in Maine, summer movies also means the coming of the Maine International Film Festival. The 15th annual festival gets underway on July 13 and runs through July 22 and features over 50 filmmakers and nearly 100 films over the course of the 10-day run.

As you might guess, a whole lot of work goes into those 10 days.
