The St Kilda Festival 2020
St Kilda Festival is Australia’s largest community festival; a celebration of community spirit, live local music and the beautiful St Kilda foreshore. Held on the second Sunday in February each year, the St Kilda Festival routinely attracts over 400,000 attendees. The website gets quite a bit of traffic too. This year, there is an amazing lineup - including the fabulous KYLIE AULDIST (oh my oh my - bit excited by this), DRMNGNOW, The Black Sorrows and much more. Get there (but dont take your car!).

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).

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
