Introduction to the 2013 Melbourne International Film Festival
In another very exciting first for Movie Critical this year, we will be travelling down to Melbourne this year for the 61st annual Melbourne International Film Festival.
The Melbourne International Film Festival (MIFF) will run from the 25th July through to the 11th of August. The festival, which had it's beginnings in 1952, will this year be showcasing over 300 films over it's 17 days at various locations around Melbourne. It is one of the biggest film festival's in Australia and is the country's biggest showcase of Australian cinema. MIFF also contains many of the current films from world cinema and is committed to promoting the newest talent in filmmaking both domestically and internationally.
Movie Critical will be in Melbourne for the final few days of the festival this year and attending some of the highlights of the festival, including the Australian premiere of Artifact, which the band 30 Seconds To Mars will be attending. We will also be attending and giving a review of the current Hollywood Costume exhibition at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image.
Several of the films which will be screening at MIFF we reviewed at the Sydney Film Festival last month. Here is a list of the films Movie Critical reviewed which are showing at MIFF and the links for their reviews from the Sydney Film Festival.
