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.

Hot Car And Crazy Coyote
Director: Jerome Cauwe

Belgium, 5'13, 2010

An exquisitely crafted gentle interrogation of the human heart using abstract metaphors and symbols.
The Briefcase Man / L’Homme A La Valise
Director/Producer: ArtFx

France, 5'23, 2010
A man, a briefcase, a horizon, a shaky pathway high above the ground.
The Trembling Veil Of Bones
Director: Matthew Talbot-Kelly

Canada, 12'42, 2010
Bones, a lone clockmaker, sits inside a darkened studio filled with the sounds of ticking clocks.
Director: Evelyn Verschoore

A solitary saxophonist makes one or two hearts beat a little faster when he goes to his window and plays to the audience of one across the street.
Love & Theft
Director: Andreas Hykade
Producer: Thomas Meyer-Hermann

Germany, 6'49, 2010
A beautifully crafted piece of over-caffeinated, morphing, animated madness.
