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.

Unplugged

Complimenting the historical focus of the Zagrebfilm Tribute screening, this program of recently released Croatian animation (one of our Competition Programs) shines a spotlight on the new generation of filmmakers continuing to till the fertile soils originally sown by Zagrebfilm. Inspired by the rich history of animated films passed down to them from Zagrebfilm, this new generation make the most of the advantages offered by latest technology to create stunning new works about the world they see.

Wizard Of OS: The Fish Incident
Tom Jantol
