The 25th annual Maine International Film Festival is scheduled for July 8-17 at Railroad Square Cinema and the Waterville Opera House in Waterville, at the Skowhegan Drive-In Theater in Skowhegan, and online.

Throughout the festival attendees can see a slate of approximately 100 films, including premieres, made-in-Maine features, classic revivals, and short films from around the world, according to a news release from the Maine Film Center.

“We couldn’t be prouder to return to a full-scale festival for our 25th anniversary,” said Mike Perreault, executive director of the center. “This celebration of film brings art and storytelling to Maine that might otherwise not be enjoyed by audiences here. And our new Tourmaline Prize will provide additional support to independent filmmakers by celebrating the best made-in-Maine films.”

The complete festival lineup and individual ticket sales will be available mid-June.
