The Melbourne International Animation Festival (MIAF) is one of the largest animation festivals in the world. It usually screens around 400-450 films each year in competitive, panorama, student, curated and retrospective programs. MIAF generates a smaller touring festival called the Australian International Animation Festival (AIAF), is a submissions base for the London International Animation Festival, the New Zealand Film Festival, the Sydney Film Festival and assists in programming a number of other festivals in Australia, Taiwan, South Korea and the USA.
When you submit your film to MIAF, your film is automatically considered for each of these festivals although these other events will send you a separate and specific invitation if they wish to invite your film.
