Melbourne International FILM FESTIVAL's NEXT GEN PROGRAM
Thursday 28 July – Sunday 14 August 2016
Win a double pass for one of the 3 French Films!
Established in 1952, the Melbourne International Film Festival (MIFF) is one of the oldest film festivals in the world and the most significant screen event in Australia. An iconic Melbourne event, the festival takes place annually in the heart of the city, presenting an acclaimed screening program alongside industry and celebratory events.
MIFF showcases the best in current cinema from around the world as well as retrospectives, tributes and discussion programs. Since its inception, MIFF has also been committed to local film: it is Australia's largest showcase of new Australian cinema and is the country’s most vocal champion of emerging and established local filmmaking talent. The festival also hosts many celebratory world premieres of local films.
Now in its 10th year, MIFF's Next Gen program for schools is here! Screening films in the languages most commonly taught in Victorian schools – French, German, Italian,Japanese and Mandarin – Next Gen is a carefully curated selection of high-quality, diverse and age-appropriate films that are not available online, not available on home entertainment, and not guaranteed a cinema release in Australia. So see them at MIFF or risk missing out!
ADAMA (82 mins, dir. Simon Rouby)
Inspired by the real-life stories of West African men recruited to fight for French forces, Adama takes audiences on an energetic quest brimming with emotion, excitement and impressive technical artistry. In the hands of debut director Simon Rouby, the film's striking style of animation – bringing the story to life via a combination of painted 2D backgrounds and laser-scanned 3D clay sculptures – proves as much of a marvel as its thoughtful insights into an over-looked slice of history.
MISS IMPOSSIBLE (90 mins, dir. Emilie Deleuze)
THE NEW KID (81 mins, dir. Rudi Rosenberg)
