Kids Program
Kids Club: Pixel Pinkie

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.

(Films in competition)

Pretty much what it says on the can – a compendium of the strangest or funniest (not always the same thing) films drawn from the 2000+ submissions we received. Expect smatterings of mindless violence, intriguing alternative views of the world, a few gutbusters and a visual overload or two. A MIAF tradition nowadays and a reminder – if one is needed – that animation knows no imaginative boundaries!

I Live In The Woods
Max Winston
USA, 2007, 3'45
It has to be every crazed hillbilly’s dream to kill all the cuddly animals with his bare hands. But what about God? Is nothing sacred? If you like your Gods intact and all powerful, this is probably not the film for you.

Cuddle Sticks
Mike Geiger
Canada, 2008, 2'30
Crossing a line that even Kricfalusi might have drawn. A demented look at the origins of kiddie ice treats.

Rescued
Peter Parlegreco

USA, 2008, 8'15

A stranger arrives in a surreal world where nothing is as it seems. Not even close.

Yesno
Antonio Amaral
France, 2008, 8'00
Surrealism meets up with Crumb for a coffee and takes a long walk through Crazytowne.
Morph Mush Mash
Alex Cormack
USA, 2007, 2'30
A crazed, wonderful head-warping extravaganza.
Ex-Ergo
Yolyanko William
Cuba, 2008, 1'00
A text book example of how to eat yourself set to the music of Aphrodite’s Child.
Fantasie In Bubblewrap
Arthur Metcalf
USA, 2007, 3'45
Even bubblewrap has feelings. Lots of feelings. Especially when you start popping them one at a time. They begin to wonder out loud which bubble will be next.
Morris And The Other
Edwin Rostron
UK, 2008, 4'00
A most peculiar collection of arms, legs, heads, kites, tanks, trucks and trolleys.
Turducken
Steve Stark
USA, 2008, 3'15
What do you get when you stuff a chicken into a duck into a turkey? “Three birds, One Hell Of A Detective”, that’s what.
Clean The Restroom
Hung-Hsin Shih
Taiwan, 2008, 2'15
It’s not a career that suits everyone, but a little rhythm makes cleaning restrooms a lot more fun than it could be.
Happy Birthday To Me
Hui-Shan Lee
Taiwan, 2008, 4'15
A heart-felt birthday greeting from the furthest reaches of a wonderous psychedelic soul.
Odeki+
Naoki Yamaji
Japan, 2007, 4'30
OK – where to begin! A chronicle showcasing the explosively painful mishaps of a slightly mutated variant of the male of the species who has problems keeping his tenderest appendage under cover.
Another Way To Fly
Eva Andujar
Spain, 2008, 5'00
After a midnight insect attack, a man goes through a brain-rattling, full technicolour transformation.
SUPERJAIL
Aaron Augenblick
USA, 2007, 12'00
Welcome to Superjail, an ultra-violent prison complex run by a mad Willy Wonka-esque warden channelling some kind of warped combo of Fred Astaire on speed and a wild-eyed Year 4 school teacher.
