The Massachusetts Multicultural Film Festival (MMFF), first held in 1993, is an annual event that takes place in the Spring.

Founded and curated by Professor Catherine Portuges, Director of the Interdepartmental Program in Film Studies at UMass, the Festival features new groundbreaking works by both emerging and established international filmmakers.

The festival addresses a different theme each year, highlighting topical issues in politics and art—"New Faces of Documentary" (2005), "Film and the Arts" (2003), "Human Rights and the Millennium" (2000). Film scholars and the filmmakers themselves introduce the films and take questions from the audience after screenings.

The MMFF attracts a large and diverse audience including Five-College students and faculty, as well as residents of the Pioneer Valley.

Screenings are free and open to the public. See the MMFF web site for a complete list of the films featured in the latest festival. For more information on cinema-related study and activities, please refer to the Film Studies web site.
