Ah animation... how we love thee!

The Melbourne International Animation Festival is a whopping eleven day celebratory feast of forums and over 400 of the best recently released, historical and retrospective animation from around the world.

MIAF also hosts the RENDER Animation Conference, a unique opportunity over two days to be introduced to a diverse range of local and international presenters and keynote speakers to inform and expand your animated universe.

Held annually in June at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image, MIAF & RENDER showcase a comprehensive line-up from award winners, outstanding industry veterans, inspiring independents, stupendous studios and those wonderful newcomers exploring their talent on screen for the very first time.

MIAF is the premier animation festival of Australia, and is one of the largest festivals in the world dedicated to auteur animation.
