The Melbourne International Animation Festival is a forum that brings together animators from all over the world.

These animation works are selected from the creme de la creme of recent and historical releases. The annual event is an eye-opener for players in the animation industry and serves to offer an engaging and insightful experience for those who attend.

Melbourne International Animation Festival 2019 Dates, ACMI Tickets

It is not all competition at the festival, as other works by promising animators are also displayed. What is interesting to note is that the festival celebrates veterans in the field, as well as the amazing studios that help create these mind-blowing works of art. There will be over 450 films screened during the festival, at over 50 screens and you will see the best of Australia’s new talent in animation.

Visitors are interested in submitting a piece of work, make sure you check out the deadlines for film submission on the festival’s website. Typically, this is announced well in advance to allow interested parties to make sure they have sufficient time to submit their work.

Spectators to the Melbourne International Animation Festival can make plans by purchasing advance tickets online or in person at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) which is located at Federation Square.

Spectators can either purchase a festival pass, a mini pass or a single ticket, depending on how many times they wish to attend the Festival. The program of the festival varies slightly from one year to year, but generally follows a similar pattern.

There is often an opening night gala screening, usually on the first day, which serves to whet the audience’s appetite for the pending works to follow. As the opening night gala is very popular, tickets should be booked early to avoid disappointment.
