MIFF Partners with DECJUBA Foundation


MIFF is thrilled to announce a major philanthropic partnership with DECJUBA Foundation.

DECJUBA Foundation’s two-year commitment is one of the largest gifts in the history of MIFF, and will support the delivery of the event in 2024 and 2025. Its donation directly supports the festival’s work to bring ‘stories that need telling’ to audiences across Victoria.

DECJUBA Foundation’s inspired commitment to MIFF will impact the more than 360,000 people who engage with MIFF activities across the coming two-year period. This support helps the festival to elevate its screenings far beyond a regular trip to the cinema, while enabling MIFF to keep ticket prices low and affordable for all.

“DECJUBA Foundation is excited to support Australia’s most iconic film event,” says Gill Whelan, General Manager of DECJUBA Foundation.

Filmmakers are the great storytellers of our time, and seeing films at MIFF can be life-changing. We are thrilled to support their work to bring the best cinema to Melbourne, and to inspire the next generation of Australian creatives.

Details of a special world-premiere screening, delivered in partnership with DECJUBA, will be announced in June.

The generous gift from DECJUBA Foundation signals the launch of the festival’s end-of-financial-year fundraising appeal. MIFF is seeking to raise a further A$250,000 from its film-loving community to sustain the delivery of the event in 2024.
