MIFF Galas

Celebrate MIFF 2019 in style with our exclusive gala screenings.

The festival kicks off with the world premiere of The Australian Dream, an emotional, powerful call to arms, questioning what sort of country we want to be.

Always a hot ticket, MIFF’s Centrepiece Gala is a cinematic celebration of both Australian filmmaking and of the festival’s halfway point. Ticket price includes the Australian Premiere gala screening of Little Monsters with our filmmaking guests and entry to the exclusive afterparty.

MIFF’s Kids Gala turns five in 2019, and to celebrate we’ve given it a make-over. Now known as the Family Gala, it’s the same fun-filled, family-friendly gala screening you know and love, this year celebrating the world premiere of H is for Happiness, complete with a celebratory red carpet and party, fun activities and delicious treats.

Farewell MIFF 2019 with the Australian premiere of The Farewell, Lulu Wang’s funny, tender and bittersweet autobiographical tale of family, tradition and cross-cultural, cross-generational frustrations. Following the film, join us for the fun of MIFF’s famous Closing Night festivities, with DJs, dancing and drinks ‘til late.
