The much-loved and internationally acclaimed MIFF Shorts program highlights the art of saying more with less. Showcasing the best short films – from Cannes prize winners to local discoveries – this year’s selection includes animation, documentary, experimental, and Australian and international fiction shorts; a special suite of short films about movement on screen; and several pre-feature shorts.
And don’t forget the Accelerator program featuring exciting and diverse works by emerging filmmakers from Australia.
MIFF features one of the most highly regarded short-film competitions in both the Asia-Pacific region and the Southern Hemisphere. Now in its 60th year, and presented by Mountain Goat Beer, the MIFF Shorts Awards are Academy Awards® accredited. The 2021 winners of the Best Short Film, Best Australian Short Film, Best Documentary Short Film and Best Animation Short Film awards are eligible to submit their films for the 94th Academy Awards® in 2022.
