 Melbourne International Film Festival 



The Melbourne International Film Festival (MIFF) is a film-lover's paradise. See international premieres, red carpet glamour and the best global cinema.

Established in 1952, the Melbourne International Film Festival (MIFF) is one of the oldest film festivals in the world and the most significant screen event in Australia. An iconic Melbourne event, the festival takes place annually in the heart of the city, presenting an acclaimed screening program alongside industry and celebratory events.

MIFF showcases the best in current cinema from around the world, as well as retrospectives, tributes and discussion programs. Since its inception, MIFF has also been committed to local film: it is Australia's largest showcase of new Australian cinema, and the country's most vocal champion of emerging and established local film-making talent. The festival also hosts many celebratory world premieres of local films.

Complementing the screening program is MIFF's renowned industry program that includes an investment fund (the Premiere Fund) and the director's development program (Accelerator). MIFF's finance market (37°South) brings the national and international screen industry to Melbourne during the festival and celebrates Melbourne as a centre for screen business.
