Melbourne International Film Festival Artistic Director Al Cossar tells Breakfasters why he’s so excited about MIFF's 70th Year.
One of the longest-running film festivals in the world, this is the first full MIFF program since 2019, spreading itself across screens in Melbourne and beyond.
Al explains to the team that a good place to dive into the program is via MIFF Headliners, and that there is something in the program for everyone - whether you’re a hardcore cinephile or a more casual cinema goer.
Al says this year’s bumper program features films that are iconic, restored, undiscovered, and brand new. He also explains why MIFF have introduced its first-ever film competition for emerging and breakthrough filmmakers.
