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.

Rocks In My Pockets (excerpt) | Signe Baume

We’ve been working on this one for years. It’s finally boiled down to an eclectic, high energy, roll-call of indie animators working in the Big Apple right now. We’ve visited lofts, semi-legal studios, schools and film collectives. We’ve been passed DVDs in festival bars, met animators in lower east side cafes and banged into them at airports. We’ve racked our memories, chased down leads and followed up on myths, legends and tall tales – probably using up every favour we have in the City That Never Sleeps. So, time to show some films already!!


Rocks In My Pockets (excerpt)
Signe Baume

USA, 4'00, 2011
We're feeling a bit lucky – a sneak preview of a Signe Baume feature, which is still in production. Signe helped ALOT to put this program together and she's right in the middle of the New York indie scene. Her new feature promises to be something special.

The Flying House
Bill Plympton, Winsor McCay

USA, 7'31, 2011
A unique project that spans the history of New York animation. Using original footage, the grandmaster of the New York indie scene, Bill Plympton, adapts and re-animates the 1921 Winsor McCay classic, The Flying House.

Made You Cringe
Andy London, Caroline London

USA, 3'00, 2011
Hot off the press! A series of brand new, decidedly low-brow mini-episodes from the fertile minds of the Londons.
David Sheahan

USA, 4'15, 2009
A turbo-charged, psychedelic, bug overload that follows the highs and lows of a freaky little collection of cockroaches.
Kelsey Stark

USA, 4'22, 2010
Ghosts just wanna have fun. An everlasting limbo where death has no meaning.
Mike Rauch, Tim Rauch

USA, 4’00, 2009
Twelve-year-old Joshua Littman, who has Asperger's syndrome, interviews his mother Sarah about everything from cockroaches to her feelings about him as a kid.
You're Outa Here
George Griffin

USA, 3'37, 2009
A spunky descendant of Betty Boop tells her no-good boyfriend to hit the road to the striding rhythms of Fats Waller's The Minor Drag, reinvented as You're Outa Here. A modern soundie.
Down To The Bone
Peter Ahern

USA, 4'00, 2009
Life just ain't no good when you've had your skin pulled off you.
Paris Mavroidis

USA, 3'07, 2008
Free-form elegance and free-falling grace. An experimental animation inspired by Busby Berkeley’s mass gymnastics and experimental cinema from the ‘20s and ‘30s.
Andy Kennedy

USA, 4'33, 2010
A meditation on motion and the life cycle of matter, animated hands-on in soft clay on a spin cycle.
Something Left, Something Taken
Ru Kuwahata, Max Porter

USA, 10'15, 2010
Everyone who enters a crime scene leaves something behind and takes something away.
Guard Dog Global Jam
Bill Plympton
& friends
USA, 5'26, 2010
Bill Plympton's classic Guard Dog re-animated by a small battalion of 70 online contributors. A vast exhilarating mash-up of techniques and styles but a ‘Plymptoon’ down to the core.

Harrell, Becca Wallace
Triumph Of The Wild
Martha Colburn

USA, 10'00, 2008
A searing exposé on American battles and the impotence of man to face down the forces of nature.
Rinky Dink
John Dilworth

USA, 4'41, 2009
A decidedly post-modern fairy tale about a princess who finds her decidedly post-modern true love.
