MIFF belongs to the film lovers of the city. 

But for a not-for-profit cultural organisation like MIFF, the last few years have been extremely challenging. Costs have gone up and audience behaviours have changed.

Help us protect the future of MIFF and get involved in our film-loving community. All donations above $2 are tax-deductible.

MIFF needs your love. This is your cue.

Since 1952, MIFF has been bringing breakthrough independent films to Melbourne in a world-class program of premieres and events. The festival has presented films by the great auteurs of the world alongside thrilling new talents – all while supporting local filmmakers and celebrating Australia’s cinematic stories.

MIFF is the most prestigious not-for-profit film organisation in Australia. There’s nothing quite like it.

We’re working hard to ensure that our program, our industry projects and our only-at-MIFF events build on the incredible legacy of the festival. And this year, we’re thrilled to return with our much-loved (and much-missed!) 48-page printed Program Guide.

The last few years have been extremely challenging. Producing a festival is expensive and risky, and our financial model relies on six weeks of box office income to survive. We’re trying to keep ticket prices low, while venue, travel and production costs have seen sharp increases. We may be recovering from our COVID years, but audiences have changed and many are still finding their way back to events like ours.

If you love film and if you love Melbourne as much we do, then please make a donation to MIFF today.
