The Melbourne International Animation Festival (MIAF)
is one of the largest animation festivals in the world. It usually screens
around 350-400 films each year in competitive, student, curated &
retrospective programs. MIAF generates a smaller touring festival called
the Australian International Animation Festival, is the submissions
base for UTS Sydney International Animation Festival, London International
Animation Festival and provides specific programming advise to the New
Zealand Film Festival. When you submit your film to MIAF, your film
is automatically considered for each of these other festivals although
these other events will send you separate and specific invitations if
they wish to screen your film.
There is no fee to enter
To be considered eligible for selection in MIAF09, your film should
have been completed AFTER
1 January 2007.
The Festival Director reserves the right to grant exceptions to this
criteria in exceptional circumstances.
Your film must arrive in a format
that can be viewed by pre-selectors and the jury members.
Please supply a DVD (pal / all regions) or VHS (pal and ntsc).
We are unable to accept Quicktime files, betacams, miniDV or
any film prints for pre-selection because of the difficulty of playing
these formats without open access to equipment.
DVDs are unreliable devices, so please test your copy
thoroughly before submitting it. We will generally NOT contact entrants
who provide an unplayable DVD, and the submission will be rejected.
We suggest you provide two copies of your film, burnt from different
computers in case one copy fails.
An Entry Form must accompany each entry and must have
all required information supplied. We require at
least two digital stills for every film that screens in the festival,
and ask entrants to please provide these stills at time of entry.
