The story of film in Melbourne could not be told without MIFF.

The Melbourne International Film Festival (MIFF) has been running continuously 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.

A Machine for Viewing

An echo of a VR experience reverberates through an empty cinema.

Originally taking the form of an in-person VR piece, this dynamic hybrid work previously screened in alternate iterations at IDFA and Sundance. Slated for the MIFF 68½ program but delayed owing to lockdown, the project has now been reimagined as a digital offering for a virtual MIFF audience.
