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.

A series of short, sharp, straight-to-the-point, intensive little download presentations about a specific element of animation and/or a film in the line-up.

Pop in at 5.15pm during the week to kick start your night at the festival

Only $6 per session.

Pause Fest - Future Vision
tuesday 21 june, 5.15pm
cinema 1
(unclassified 18+)

Presenters: George Hedon, Filip Nakic
Pause Fest is an exciting new festival showcasing the work of the leading creative minds of the twenty-first century. It will be a meeting point for global thinkers that dare to innovate, break new ground and forge ever higher standards. They are ideally placed to illuminate the trajectories that animation may travel along through our future creative, commercial and entertainment landscapes. The Pause Fest crew will outline a vision of this future, as they see it, replete with a selection of works from artists at the digital interface.

Gaming Culture in Animation
wednesday 22 june, 5.15pm
cinema 1
(unclassified 18+)

8 Bits - screnning in International program 8: Supinfocom Is Back! Get Real - screnning in International Program 1 The External World - screening in International Program 7: Long Shorts

Presenter: Paul Callaghan of FREEPLAY Independent Games Fest (www.freeplay.net.au)

All gaming is animation but not all animation is gaming. The influences gaming has on auteur, indie animation are vast, pervasive (perhaps insidious) and fascinating. The ‘look’ of many short animated films obviously owes much to elements of gaming but perhaps less obvious are the cultural and narrative cross-pollinations such as the increasingly brittle relationship we have with words like ‘reality’ and ‘friend’. Using a collection of films from competition as examples, this talk will explore the soaring visions, the conceptual gymnastics and even the cultural toxins with which gaming irrigates the animation artform.

Making a Cut-out Film
My Good Half - a work in progress

thursday 23 june, 5.15pm
cinema 1
(unclassified 18+)

Presenters: Anna Jeffries, Isobel Knowles
Using the cut-out technique, director Anna Jeffries and animator Isobel Knowles plan to bring to screen the true story of two of the most amazing people to ever grace a regal court. A vast amount has been achieved on the script, a working animatic is complete and a ‘technique test’ has been shot. They will present the outline of My Good Half and draw us a vision for the completed work. Everyone attending will be offered a free ticket to the future MIAF screening of the finished film.

Multi-platforms
Animation In All The Right Places

friday 24 june, 5.15pm
cinema 1
(unclassified 18+)

Head to the website

Presenters: Emma Magenta (Author, Poet, Illustrator), Aaron Powell (Animation Director), Rachel Okine (Producer)
The Gradual Demise Of Phillipa Finch
(Emma Magenta, Aaron Powell) is a rare film. It has maintained a strong, captivating and engaging creative core even though it has been produced to run on a multitude of platforms. Impressively, it works in every neighbourhood of the animation ‘distribution’ system it visits including a range of downloadable formats, short TV episodes and as a long-form cinematic short. Key members of the film’s team will outline how this was achieved both on the purely creative and production levels with a re-screening of the film to follow. And Toni Collette is the voice talent - very lovely.

> Screening in Australian Showcase, Saturday 25 June 4.15pm
