MIFF Shorts Awards

The much-loved and internationally acclaimed MIFF Shorts program highlights the art of saying more with less.

MIFF features one of the most highly regarded short film competitions in the Southern Hemisphere. Thanks to our Shorts Awards partners, in 2018 eligible short films competed for a total cash prize pool of $56,000.

The MIFF Shorts Awards are Academy Awards® accredited. The 2019 winners of the Best MIFF Short, Best Australian Short and Best Documentary awards are eligible to submit their film for the 92nd Academy Awards® in 2020.
