  • Submission Info

The Melbourne International Animation Festival is a celebratory feast of forums and over 400 of the best recently released, historical and retrospective animation from around the world. It also includes the RENDER Animation Conference. Held annually in June at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (located centrally in Federation Square), MIAF showcases a comprehensive line-up from award winners, outstanding industry veterans, inspiring independents, stupendous studios and those wonderful newcomers exploring their talent on screen for the very first time. MIAF is the premier animation festival of Australia, and is one of the largest festivals in the world dedicated to auteur animation.

MIAF generates a smaller touring festival called the Australian International Animation Festival (AIAF), is a submissions base for the London
International Animation Festival, the New Zealand Film Festival, the Sydney Film Festival and assists in programming a number of other festivals in Australia, Taiwan, South Korea and the USA

When you submit your film to MIAF, your film is automatically considered for each of these festivals although these other events will send you a separate and specific invitation if they wish to invite your film.
