Melbourne International Film Festival (MIFF)
August 5 - August 22
MIFF has been continuously running since 1952, making it the leading film festival in Australia and one of the world’s oldest film festivals, alongside Cannes and Berlin. Presenting a curated global program of innovative screen experiences and the world’s largest showcase of exceptional Australian filmmaking, MIFF is an accessible, iconic cultural event that provides transformative experiences for audiences and filmmakers alike.
MIFF 2021 will include a hefty 283 titles, including 199 features, 84 shorts and 10 XR experiences. Among them are 40 world premieres; the most in the festival’s 69 year history.
Some 62 of those films will be available nationally via MIFF Play, the festival’s online screening platform, with the festival reimagined this year as a hybrid event.
MIFF’s in cinema experiences will run for 11 days from August 5 – 15, while the online edition runs August 14 – 22.
