In addition to the Artistic Awards above, MITF bestows the following prizes:

The Congeniality Award- Awarded to a festival production that excels in demonstrating congeniality before, during, and after the festival process, including efficiency, flexibility, tact, and professionalism. This monetary award is voted on by the Festival crew that interacts with the shows on a daily basis, and presented by MITF Production Manager TEd Sterns. This award was given to the productions Keep on Truckin' - It's War and Erotomania, in a tie.

Producers' Awards- This monetary award is awarded to the producers who sell the most tickets and engage in the most inventive marketing, presented by MITF Executive Producer John Chatterton. This award was given to the productions Final Analysis, for selling the most tickets, and Whatta Ya Nuts!, for the largest gross.

The MITF's 2012 season ran from July 16 - August 5, 2012 at the June Havoc Theatre, 312 W. 36th Street, 1st floor and the Dorothy Strelsin Theatre, 312 W. 36th Street, 1st floor.

Mr. Chatterton created the MITF in 2000, a Midtown alternative to other theatre festivals, as a way to present the finest Off-Off Broadway talent in convenience, comfort, and safety. In 2003, the MITF moved its activities to their current location, the Theatre Building on W. 36th St., where it has been successfully ensconced since. The MITF's artistic emphasis is on the script itself, and therefore the Festival focuses on minimal production values.
