The Melbourne International Film Festival has been running for 60 years and is the most significant screen event in Australia.
The Festival's screening programme includes the best current cinema from around the world as well as retrospectives, tributes and discussions. Complementing the screenings is a renowned industry programme that includes an investment fund (the Premiere Fund) and the director’s development programme (Accelerator). The Festival also holds a finance market (37˚ South) which brings the national and international screen industry to Melbourne and celebrates it as a centre for screen business.
