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.

The Show | Rebecca Hayes

It’s always sensational to see local animators strutting their stuff, and this year the collection in the Australian Showcase is outstanding, with a wide range of genres that include digital, hand drawn, abstract and stop motion.

Immediately after the screening, you’ll have an opportunity to be introduced to the filmmakers who created some of these films, ask them about their work and join in a discussion about animating in this wide, brown land.

Don’t forget to check out the Australian Panorama program and Australian Student program in the Best of the Next.
