The Atlantic Film Festival Association (AFFA) holds four events throughout the year. The Atlantic Film Festival is a 10-day event, screening films from Canada and around the world, and showcasing Atlantic Canadian films and artists. During the first three days of the Festival, AFFA simultaneously runs Strategic Partners, an international co-production market focusing on film & TV and early stage projects that is limited to 200 top industry players from around the world. In the spring, the AFFA holds the ViewFinders: International Film Festival for Youth, a 5-day event designed to engage, entertain and educate young people. The AFF Outdoor Film Experience, (formerly alFresco filmFesto) is the AFFA's outdoor summer film series held on the Halifax waterfront.
The 2005 festival experienced a 24 per cent attendance increase from the previous year with 29,400 in overall attendance, including 28 sold-out screenings and events. In 2007 attendance was up 18 per cent over 2006, with a record-setting 33,500 people taking part in the 27th annual event.
