Join us for a laugh at the opening of MWFF 2022!

Hosted by award-winning comedian Geraldine Hickey, MWFF 2022 kicks off with a series of comedic short films from some of Australia’s best filmmakers and new talent.

Whether it’s a hot date (or not?), a dinner party that takes a macabre turn, a rogue printer terrorising an office worker late at night, or an awkward family dinner, there is something that will tickle your funny bone and make you laugh louder.
