Melbourne International Animation Festival

MIAF Makes It To 10 in 2010!

21-27 June 2010, acmi cinemas

Submissions for MIAF10 are now open!


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 MIAF.
To be considered eligible for selection in MIAF10, your film should have been completed
AFTER 1 January 2008.
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 (we prefer PAL / all regions) or VHS (pal and ntsc)
that can be played in a dvd player and viewed on a tv screen.

We cannot accept the following for pre-selection:
- internet downloads or files
- utube/website links
- computer files
- Quicktime files
- Flash files

- betacams
- digibetas
- miniDV
- film prints

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 the time of entry.
