One of Australia’s biggest annual celebrations of cinema is set to return when the Melbourne International Film Festival begins Thursday 2 August.
This year’s program contains over 300 features and shorts, with many award-winning films hand-picked from festivals around the world by Artistic Director Michelle Carey.
There’s Cannes 2012 highlights including Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom, the Kylie Minogue-starring favourite Holy Motors and the Palme d’Or winning Amour by Michael Haneke. The much-celebrated Beasts of the Southern Wild is a MIFF must-see, and you can catch the Official Competition winner of the Sydney Film Festival; Alps.
Don’t miss the moving premiere of The Sessions – about a polio victim determined to lose his virginity – or Mads Mikkelsen’s award-winning performance in Thomas Vinterberg’s The Hunt.
There’s a collection of films that look back to the 1970s ‚ÄòNew Hollywood’ movement, a brilliant range of documentaries and so much more. Check out the full program online.
