MIFF Platinum Patrons are a select group of individuals who are united by their passion for cinema, passion for MIFF and the desire that we remain one of the world’s leading film festivals. Platinum Patrons make a transformational difference to MIFF: helping us attract the world’s best talent to Melbourne, connecting our communities to artists and amplifying the reach of Australian cinema.
In a typical year, MIFF Platinum donors enjoy a bespoke festival experience, with invitations to select private events with filmmakers and MIFF Ambassadors. They have the opportunity to host a special event or afterparty at the festival, and receive select VIP invitations throughout the year.
In addition, Platinum Patrons enjoy an advance sales period, reserved seating, invitations to the Opening, Centrepiece and Closing Night Galas, and a double invitation to our special MIFF Circle Supper – attended by Artistic Director Al Cossar and our entire programming team. Platinum Patrons also enjoy invitations to year-round sneak previews and cultural events, monthly giveaways and concession entry to partner cinemas.
In 2020, MIFF Platinum donors will enjoy acknowledgment on our website as a Founding MIFF Circle Patron, and special access to titles presented throughout MIFF 68½.
All donations are received by the Melbourne Film Festival Fund – a tax-deductible fund listed on the Australian Government’s Register of Cultural Organisations maintained under Subdivision 30-B of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997. All donations made via MIFF Circle are 100% tax-deductible if made by 30 August 2020.
