• Dear film lovers, dear MMiFF fans and friends,
    With deep regret we have to announce that for this year, due to time and  money restrictions, we are forced to take a break with our beloved  MMiFF Festival. We will give our best to come back next year.
    Yours, MMiFF Team

  • Roedelius+Chaplin | Live
    Electronica, krautrock pioneer Hans-Joachim Roedelius and actor/composer Christopher Chaplin will perform on our roof top stage presenting ‚King of Hearts‘, their first album, which was released on Sub Rosa last year. Berlin-born Roedelius is a German experimental, ambient and electronic musician. He is best known as a co-founder of the krautrock groups Cluster and Harmonia and for his work in the ambient jazz trio Aquarello. Chaplin, born in Switzerland as the youngest son of Charlie Chaplin, studied the piano before moving to London to become an actor. In 2005, he returned to music and composition. After being asked by Roedelius to record and remix some of his material for a BBC broadcasting they subsequently continued their collaboration and thus King of Hearts was born.

    Marcus Fjellström | Live
    Next to his gig at MADEIRADiG Music Festival, we are happy to also host an audio-visual performance by Marcus Fjellström at our Madeira Micro international Film Festival, presenting his newest film which serves as introduction to his upcoming ‚Clown Compositions‘. Fjellström is a Swedish-born, Berlin-based composer and multimedia artist. His work ranges from the purely orchestral through electronic music and audiovisual work. Amongst others he has worked with the Swedish Royal Ballet and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, and his music has been released on labels such as Miasmah, Lampse and Aagoo.

    Clara Hill | Live
    Clara Hill will perform a very exclusive record release concert presenting her beautiful new album ‚Walk The Distance‘. Born in East-Berlin, she did her first musical experiments on an East German Triola, a plastic guitar and a small plastic piano, while always playing by ear as she never learned to read music. Now she returns to her childhood inspirations – sound and nature – to combine them with the musical knowledge she has since accumulated. The album comes out in october on tapete records.

    Short Film ‚Corrente‘ by Rodrigo Areias with live soundtrack by António Rafael and Luís Fernandes

Luís Fernandes splits his musical activity between numerous experimental electronic acts and ‚peixe : avião‘, one of the most important new bands in Portugal. Rodrigo Areias is an awarded young Portuguese director and was curator and producer of Guimarães 2012 – European Culture Capital cinema department.

    Falko Teichmann | DJ set
    Behind the decks since the mid-90s, from downbeat beginnings in the darker corners of the lounge scene to the multi faceted musical fairground Berlin has become. A climate which caused his sets to open up to the dancefloor, forging long lasting alliances with places like the Circus/Bar 25 and Salon Zur Wilden Renate, exploring slo-motion disco and cosmic space funk. Recent DJ excursions added ethnodelic instrumental hip-hop, weird coast electronica, outernational vibes and some soulful bass music to the equation, creating pleasure zones off the four-to-the-floor grid.

    Michael Rosen | Audio/Visual DJ set … and more TBA

    Expanding The Sun by Jutojo | Audio-Visual Installation
    Over two days Berlin based visual artists Jutojo with Sophie Clements will create a projection based site-specific installation in the old Cine Sol of Ponta da Sol. „Expanding The Sun“ will be the basis for live audio-visual performances with musicians present at the MADEIRADiG festival. This new work continues a series of projects last seen in the Barbican Centre in London, Berlin and at the Cascina Cuccagna in Milan.

    The after show events will all take place on the cinema’s roof top terrace, which offers a beautiful view over the Atlantic Ocean and the village of Ponta do Sol.
