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.
