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.

White Hair
Director: Yuka Takeda
Producer: Animation Staff, Royal College of Art

UK, 5'25, 2010
The sudden discovery of a single white hair triggers an episode of obsession and denial.

Secret Bee
Director/Producer: Gina Kamentsky

USA, 2'30, 2010
Venturing toward the sweet honey-spot where representation and surface push and pull each other like a two-headed lama.

The Smaller Room
Der Kleinere Raum

Directors/Producers: Cristobal Leon, Nina Wehrle

Gallery / Galeria
Director: Robert Proch
Producer: Hieronim Neumann

Poland, 4'44, 2010
The eye of an artist, the hand of a calligrapher and the imagination of an animator all combine in this wonderfully imagined study in perspective-bending, shape-changing, black and white, moving image.
Dry Fish
Director/Producer: Andy Martin

A wondrous cascade of cool creatures, crazy colours and bewildering scenarios. Two minutes of pure fun.

An utterly unique visual experience! A boy, compelled to score the love of a mega-queen in a violent computer game, loses his grip on reality until he tastes a real kiss.
The Origin Of Creatures
Director: Floris Kaayk
Producers: Marc Thelosen, Koert Davidse, Yan Ting Yuen

Holland, 11'45, 2010
In this dark parable of a post-catastrophic world, a colony of mutilated limbs emerges in an ultimately doomed attempt to create a new form of randomly co-operative beings.

Les Bessones Del Carrer de Ponent

Directors/Producers: Marc Riba, Anna Solanas

To Swallow A Toad
Director: Jurgis Krasons
Producer: Vilnis Kalnaellis

Latvia, 10'00, 2010
It's The Rounds vs The Squares. The Squares can deal with The Rounds cutting their ears off all the time ‘cause they can swallow toads, but at some point toad addiction looms.

A visit to an Indian mental institution reminds Ines of the last days she spent with her friend Amar.
