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.

Cosmic Jungle | Marie Ayme, Martin Brunet, Alexandre Cazals, Sebastien de Oliveira Bispo, Fabrice Fiteni, Mathieu Garcia, Alexandre Vial

A one-off mentoring project, teaming groups of select Supinfocom students with key French graphic novel artists and designers.

French Artistic Director Christian Janicot invited 12 of the finest contemporary illustrators and artists working in cartoons, the publishing industry and the press to team up with one hundred
student directors from the prestigious Supinfocom school of animation to find out how their 2D artistic styles would come to life – in moving 3D images! Entitled Le Laboratoire d’Images, together they have created 12 original 3D short films and have set the benchmark for the creative arts of
tomorrow. And I decided to show the lot as a stand-alone program. Somehow, it just seemed like the right thing to do. It fitted in nicely with the Supinfocom Is Back! program that I was working on at the same time and, besides, I couldn’t choose which ones to leave out.

* The designers were an integral part of this project and give each film that extra dimension.
