Film classification regulations in Australia require all films to either be formally classified OR restricted to an audience of 18 years of age and over. Like most festivals, we do not have the resources to classify films, and it is for this reason alone that we are not able to admit any person under the age of 18 years to the main MIAF screenings.

Girls Night Out

For 25 years, Channel 4 has been charming, perplexing and occasionally infuriating prime time television audiences with short creative, auteur animation. For more than a decade Clare Kitson was the woman orchestrating this rather unique experience. It was her job to decide which films would be funded and which films would be screened. It was one of the most important, powerful jobs in the animation world and Kitson never put a foot wrong. Commercial pressures eventually pushed this seam of programming over the edge and we now have nothing but the history and the films to reflect upon.

Kitson’s new book documents her time at Channel 4 working with a who’s who of British animation. Over a glass of wine on a rooftop in London one evening, she agreed to curate this program of her favourite films from the Channel 4 archive.
