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

The Melbourne International Film Festival (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.

We look forward to welcoming you to MIFF’s 70th edition, running 4–21 August 2022.
