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 Tape
Directors: Michal Kranot, Uri Kranot

The Renter

Based on a true story. A young boy in an elderly woman's care finds himself more and more adrift as her surly tenant makes his presence felt.

An animated calaveras (google it) to the people of Earth. A darkly comic look at life in the city in the year 2110.
Horse Glue
Director/Producer: Stephen Irwin

UK, 6'55, 2010
When two films, Horse (a miniature war film) and Glue (a tale of a child alone in the woods), unfold together within the same space, their narratives become intertwined.
Fast Forward Little Red Riding Hood
Director: Sjaak Rood
Producer: Ton Crone
