Melbourne International Film Festival
Established in 1952, the Melbourne International Film Festival (MIFF) is one of the world’s oldest film festivals and the Southern Hemisphere’s largest, and this year MIFF celebrates its 60th Festival. The Festival has a large, dedicated and growing audience with a well-established public profile as a major event on the Australian calendar.
The Festival is a unique event in Australia, with a vibrant screening program, a loyal audience, and industry initiatives providing opportunities for Australian filmmakers at many levels. In recent years, MIFF has successfully extended its activities to include a raft of industry and filmmaker focused programs to complement its core business, the screening program. These are:
• Accelerator, a 4-day educational and inspirational skills development program for up-and-coming directors with short films screening at MIFF;
• MIFF 37ºSouth Market, a 4-day film financing market for producers with market-ready projects pitching to potential international and local co-financing partners;
• MIFF Premiere Fund, MIFF’s own investment and loan fund, providing essential financing support for local feature-length films. In its first year, the MIFF Premiere Fund films accounted for six of the 10 world premieres at MIFF. Four of the six MIFF Premiere Fund films were sell-out screenings.
