It all comes down to this. 4,000 submissions, 450 films screened, 200 or so in competition. A panel of judges have watched and dutifully deliberated upon the line-up. The audience have voted and made their views known. There is an audience and judges vote for the best film in each program and the judges name one of those films as the Best Of The Festival.
There are also Best Australian Film, Best Australian Student Film and Best International Student Film gongs up for grabs. And The Best Of The Fest is where those winners get their big moment of glory before we pack everything up and fade to grey. It’s MIAF Night of Nights and always sells out so be sure to book early.
