Monadnock International Film Festival (MONIFF)
Dianna Costello, Executive Director
Recently named “Up and Coming Film Fest” by New Hampshire Magazine’s “Best of New Hampshire” issue, the Monadnock International Film Festival (MONIFF) showcases high quality independent cinema every April in the beautiful Monadnock Region. 2017 will mark the fifth annual festival to be held from April 20-22nd in downtown Keene and for the first time, in neighboring Peterborough on April 23rd.
MONIFF features award-winning films on the festival circuit, both domestic and foreign, along with premieres of regionally produced films by local filmmakers. Our mission is to celebrate independent films by offering audiences compelling stories from here at home and around the world, exposing them to diverse cultures and points of view. We screen both narrative and documentary feature films as well as short films in the historic 880-seat Colonial Theatre in downtown Keene and in the Putnam Theatre at Keene State College.
The highlight of our festival on Saturday night is the Jonathan Daniels awards ceremony, honoring Keene’s Civil Rights hero and given to a filmmaker who has made a film that fuses artistic excellence with awareness of social justice issues. At the Saturday night ceremony, we also give Audience Choice awards to Best Narrative Feature, Best Documentary Feature, and Best Short Film.
Ash Sheehan, Owner and General Manager
Ash Sheehan spent his early years in Maine learning the fundamentals of excellent service and farm-to-table cuisine at both Arrows restaurant in Ogunquit and The White Barn Inn, in Kennebunk Port. It was then at McCrady’s in Charleston, South Carolina with Chef Sean Brock that Ash realized the impact of sourcing local ingredients on a community. He later returned to New England where he took over at Camp Glen Brook in Marlborough, NH as the Culinary Director and where he created a 2 acre Bio-dynamic farm that later would feed a camp of 130 people. Ash’s passions are family, food, and farming, and when he combined them all together, he came up with the idea for Odelay Taqueria.
