MELBOURNE INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL

Melbourne International Film Festival is here to take over your life and the lives of everyone around you for the next few weeks.  The program is faaaarking amazing and you get to sit down, in the dark while enjoying the offerings.

Got friends you don't like very much and need to catch up with? BAM.  Tinder date? BAM! Need to spice things up and making out in a theatre like a teenager (or because you're a teenager) turns you on? BAM! Like films? WHAM BAM THANK YOU MAAM!

We asked Greta Parry, Editor of Screen Education Magazine to run through her top 5 and added in a list of what the MAC contributors will be seeing.  Thanks to Thomas Cordwell and Richard Watts on 3RRR Smart Arts this morning for getting me so excited about Short films.

Tomorrow brings Jerram Wurlod's interview with Film-maker Natalie Cunningham about ROR showing at MIFF.
