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.

SIGGRAPH is without doubt one of the most important gathering points for the international digerati. Whether it is short films, ads, software demo reels, trailers or music videos, SIGGRAPH exists to bring the finest digital animators and their work into the spotlight.

Utilising our position as Special Programs Advisor to SIGGRAPH Asia’s CAF (Computer Animation Festival) we bring this collection of the best films to the big screen from that event and the ‘mainland’ USA SIGGRAPH (held in New Orleans).

Things are a VERY long way from OK in this doll shop, which has a way of absorbing little girls who linger too long at the window.

Don’t make the legless, red box angry – he might be looking for a friend but he eats cities!

A million and one cherries all working in perfect harmony.
Unplan The Moment
