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.

Tad's Nest
Petra Freeman

UK, 4'48, 2009
A gorgeous paint-on-glass work, which takes us on an intriguing journey to that oddest of all little places where memories are invented.

The Life Size Zoetrope
Mark Simon Hewis

UK, 6'33, 2007
The celebratory life story of one man told via a one-take live-action shot of a spinning, human zoetrope.

The Emperor
Elizabeth Hobbs

UK, 4'20, 2001
A colourful tabloid tale of Bonaparte and his not-so bony part as his pickled organ goes under the auctioneer's hammer.
Karen Kelly

UK, 6'30, 1994
Soft bodies, hard landings, tenement times – living ain’t easy. Drawing our own conclusions about the city.
Run Wrake

UK, 8'30, 2005
The random justice of nature told with curious images from a distant childhood. When an idol is found in the stomach of a rabbit, great riches follow.
Dad's Dead
Chris Shepherd

UK, 6'36, 2002
A compelling story of friendship and denial told through a series of ghostly reminiscences and visual flashbacks from a young man’s fragmented memory of the past.
Without You
Tal Rosner

UK, 4'50, 2008
A visual exploration of London's industrial suburbia following colours and surfaces into abstraction and revealing the complexity of apparently simple forms.
Feeling My Way
Jonathan Hodgson

UK, 5'32, 1997
What goes around comes around: the daily cycle of home-work-home illuminated in collage, Hi-8 and paint. A layered, luminous in-sight.
Damian Gascoigne

UK, 6'07, 2005
A seven-year-old girl escapes the attentions of her over-protective mother and flies off on an accidental adventure through a surreal landscape.
What She Wants
Ruth Lingford

UK, 5'00, 1994
A woman travelling on the underground is be-devilled with images of desire.
Sunset Strip
Kayla Parker

UK, 3'30, 1996
12-frame, half-second days and a year of sunsets. Stan Brakhage-style interventions directly onto film-stock in this recording of light and cloud. Time-lapse goes transcendent.
3 Ways To Go
Sarah Cox

UK, 4'16, 1997
A trinity of techniques trace a trinity of deaths to probe the mystery of the final moments. Potent and disquieting as it seeks answers to the great question.
Who I Am And What I Want
Chris Shepherd, David Shrigley

UK, 7'23, 2005
Some may say Who I Am and What I Want is a snapshot of the human condition. Others might think Pete is just plain weird.
