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.

Admission age: 18+

Welcome to MIAF’s first International Panorama series!

This is a chance to show films that are just too good to be left out, films that didn’t get the consensus nod in the jury room, arrived too late for Competition selection, or simply films the MIAF Director, in his wisdom, thought you should see.

ACMI's brand spanking new Studio 1 space on level 1 has opened, replacing the old Screen Pit downstairs, making your marathon night of film watching even sweeter!

You will need to purchase a ticket for each session you want to see, so if you decide to miss a session (eg, check out the WIFT forum or any of the awesome programs in the main cinemas), space can be opened up for new folk to come on in.
