Platinum Patron

$10,000 contribution and over

Platinum Patrons are making a transformational difference to MIFF. This year, Platinum Patrons are supporting Festival Files – a key project for MIFF’s 70th anniversary. Developed in partnership with the University of Melbourne, Festival Files is a dynamic research project and online exhibition celebrating MIFF audiences’ memories of the festival as well as the key people who shaped the event across its seven decades. The project is the first to dive deep into the private papers of Erwin Rado, MIFF’s Artistic Director from 1957 to 1979, and includes a survey of the unique holdings of the State Library of Victoria.

Platinum Patrons enjoy:

  • a bespoke festival experience
  • the best seats in the house
  • invitations to an exclusive VIP Program Launch Party
  • invitations to select private events with filmmakers and MIFF Ambassadors
  • tickets to the Opening Night Gala, MIFF Film Competition Awards and Closing Night Gala
  • an opportunity to host an event at the festival for a small number of personal guests

Platinum Patrons also enjoy invitations to year-round Member preview screenings and concession entry to partner cinemas.

Please note that a $10,000 Platinum Patron contribution includes a tax-deductible component of $9,209.
