2019 Greek Film Festival!
Reporting in from our Santorini studio*, we'd like to draw your attention to our other favourite film festival - the 2019 Greek Film Festival! Despite the relatively small program, this festival packs a punch across 6 cities with its amazing selection of films. From absurdist dystopian black comedies to rom-coms to gut-wrenching drama (and occasionally all that at once - hello Yorgos Lanthimos!)
MIFF 2019 - thats a wrap. Now for some sleep
MIFF2019. Wow, that was an intense 3 weeks. From the amazing opening night film, to the closing night, there were many memorable nights had by team MML - especially our special "film of choice" screening of Aretha Franklin in Amazing Grace! The zombie selection was pretty good too (Jim Jarmusch's contribution to the genre with The Dead Don't Die was actually a lot of fun. So was Little Monsters).
MIFF Schools Microsite
MIFF Schools is an initiative by the Melbourne International Film Festival to enrich the cinema experience for younger viewers. This year the films were carefully programmed so that they are not only high quality, diverse and age appropriate, but also in languages commonly taught in Victorian schools.
The schools site (developed by the team at MeccaMedialight) features a simple booking system for
Its MIFF 2019 already. Proud sponsors of this iconic event, we are looking forward to another fantastic festival. This year's program features the works three exceptional auteurs – Agnieszka Holland, Penelope Spheeris and Peter Strickland (but still no John Carpenter retrospective).
This year we will be presenting miff.com.au with the brand new Textstem 6.0.
