Moscow International Film Festival (MIFF) is one of the oldest world film forums (the second after the Venice Film Festival). The Moscow International Film Festival has been leading its history since 1935. The chairman of the jury was Sergey Eisenstein and the film Chapaev opened the first festival. However, in subsequent years the festival was not held regularly. Therefore, the Moscow International Film Festival has officially counted down since 1959, when it was renewed and turned into a regular event – it was carried out over odd years, alternating with the Karlovy Vary Film Festival. In 1999 MIFF became an annual event.


Telefilm Canada recognizes the selection of a feature film in the Festival for application to its International Festival participation Program.
