The annual Myrtle Beach International Film Festival is back for its 18th year and boasts 70 films from around the world!

“A phenomenal lineup of films will be on the big screen this year,” says MBIFF founder and director Jerry Dalton. “Motion Pictures help individuals to feel, live and learn from other perspectives and storytelling. To make people laugh, think, feel, discuss and contemplate is an escape from the continual onslaught of bad news … We will have world and United States premieres taking place this year and many of the filmmakers will be in attendance.”

The film festival has received numerous accolades and awards, including “Top 25 Film Festivals to Submit To In the World” by Movie Maker Magazine and 2023 Top 10 Festivals in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina” by

From the popular “Film Talks” with filmmakers, actors and other industry professionals that will take place April 20 from 3:15-5:15 p.m. inside the Grand 14 movie theater to the actual films’ screenings, there is something to enjoy for everyone!
