Two Little People (2020) - still - Australian Showcase MIAF Re-Animated
Two Little People (2020)

ACMI & Melbourne International Animation Festival present

Australian Showcase

This event has ended and tickets are no longer available.

Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night* will stop MIAF bringing you the best new Australian animated films from 2021 – nor COVID-19 for that matter.

Nobody screens more Australian animation than MIAF and we had a great line-up all set to open MIAF 2021 – the projectors were just about warming up when the whole show was cancelled. But it takes more than that to keep a good program down – and here it is. And as usual, lots of the filmmakers will turn up to introduce their films. Better late than never – no better way to kick off the festival.

* with apologies to the US Postal Service (we’ll come up with our own pledge in time for the next MIAF)
