The Melbourne International Film Festival (MIFF) is an iconic Melbourne event with a devoted audience.

MIFF hosts a feast of cinematic delicacies from over 50 countries for 17 days each winter, heavily garnished with red carpet galas, parties and special events that envelop the CBD. Screening the very best in world cinema, MIFF is Australia's largest showcase of new Australian cinema and most vocal champion of both emerging and established local filmmaking talent.

Boasting a rich history, MIFF celebrates 65 years in 2016, and is one of the oldest film festivals in the world (one year younger than Cannes). Melbourne International Film Festival provides audiences with a unique window on the world and has acted as the leading intellectual and artistic catalyst in Australia's screen cultural landscape.

The Festival enjoys annual admissions of more than 170,000, making it one of Melbourne's significant public events.
