Mandala Festival Lounge and Wine Bar
The Forum Theatre lights up daily during MIFF as the Mandala Festival Lounge and Wine Bar. Pop in for a coffee by Profile Coffee, make it your one-stop festival food destination – there will be daily specials from Huxtable and Mister Close – or stay for a glass of Mandala wine as we celebrate Melbourne's winter nights inside the historic main theatre.
Free wi-fi and internet facilities also available.

Meet Zach from Profile Coffee. He will be brewing MIFF's best espresso coffee daily, so drop in and say hi to get your caffeine fix.
Direct from the Yarra Valley, Mandala Wines will be available to quench your thirst. If wine isn’t your thing, Cerveza Aguila beer might hit the spot.
Looking to take a short break between films? We have many reading options available for you to read in the lounge, including daily copies of The Age so you can catch up on the news and latest film reviews, as well as some independent magazines including The Lifted Brow, The Canary Press, Going Down Swinging and Filmme Fatales.
Send us your playlists! We'd love to hear your film-themed and atmospheric playlists via Spotify. We'll play our favourites in the Mandala Festival Lounge & Wine Bar during the festival!
