WE'RE OPEN!!!
MIAF's opening night 'Sneak Peak Premiere Screening' was a great success and if the buzz in the cinema (and the bar!) is anything to go by, this new way of getting the festival open is here to stay. With a fab selection of films from right across the entire MIAF program, a chance to meet our special guests, a focus on local animators, a world premiere and a one-off chance to see the new Disney Goofy short, the opening night screening had something for everyone. So... we feel open now! And it's time to get down to the very serious business of watching as much animation as is physically possible. Enjoy!
