MIFF Industry supports local screen practitioners by providing opportunities for producers to connect with project financiers at 37ºSouth Market; nurturing the development of emerging directing talent via Accelerator Lab; and co-funding “Stories That Need Telling” through the Premiere Fund.
By donating to MIFF Industry, you can enhance this work of supporting local creators of quality Australian cinema creating more opportunities for screen practitioners through our programs.
A selective talent development workshop nurturing the top screen directors of tomorrow, the Lab’s alumni includes the directors of 52 Tuesdays, Animal Kingdom, Babyteeth, Buoyancy, H is for Happiness, Hounds of Love, JoJo Rabbit, Judy & Punch, Relic and Snowtown
Providing funds to assist the production of new quality Australian films with “Stories That Need Telling” which then premiere at MIFF, films supported by the Premiere Fund have been selected for Berlin, Cannes, London, Rotterdam, Sundance and Toronto film festivals and include Balibo, Bran Nue Dae, Buoyancy, Electric Boogaloo, H is for Happiness, Paper Planes, and The Turning.
A selective event for producers to pitch their script-stage screen projects to potential financiers, the Market also includes market screenings for buyers, modules for publishers and IP owners pitching to producers their manuscripts/creative assets for potential screen adaptations, and writers pitching their screenplays to producers, plus panel discussions.
Leave it to us to put your generous donation into the MIFF Industry program or initiative with the most pressing needs at present.
