Meet MIFF Ambassador Thomas Coquerel
Who are you and what do you do?
I am an actor and NIDA graduate and have been working in film for the last five years. I first attended MIFF last year with the World Premiere of Celeste, which we’d shot in Far North Queensland, and couldn’t wait to share it with the festival in Melbourne. I’d somehow never really spent much time in the city before and loved immersing myself in the cultural feast that MIFF had to offer. I’m just really happy to be invited back this year to watch even more films and continue to support our wonderful industry.
What are you most looking forward to seeing this year?
- The Gift: The Journey of Johnny Cash
- The Nightingale
- Pain and Glory – I'm always exciting to watch Almodovar and Cruz's collaboration
