We're so pleased to present the Melbourne International Film Festival (aka MIFF) Summer Residency in the Plaza.

Showcasing innovative international and Australian films since 1952 MIFF is one of the world’s oldest films festivals alongside Cannes and Berlin. Diverse and highly respected, the festival has been instrumental in building the Melbourne community’s love for cinema and also commissions new Australian films through the MIFF Premiere Fund

Throughout the month of February MIFF will be taking over our Outdoor Screen to present four hand-picked feature film events from its Premiere Fund line-up as well as selected shorts packages throughout the day. We're proud to be presenting this outdoor cinematic experience for our local community and can't wait to see you in the Plaza again soon.
