International Animation Day 2022

International Animation Day 2022 presented by Melbourne International Animation Festival

ASIFA International Animation Day (IAD) is 28 October. This year MIAF are celebrating Australian animation.

Come celebrate the best new Australian animation!

In 2020 we did a little piece on International Animation Day (IAD). The celbrations included the film Spiritus Mundi: Animating the World with MIAF’s own producer and sometimes-programmer Annie Murray, with her piece ‘This Is Mine’.

In 2021 we celebrated with a very special online screening of the Australian Student Showcase. We had 6 short films from the 2020 graduate class with a little interview with the students behind the work.

For 2022 we wanted to go even bigger.
MIAF are presenting an in-person screening of the Australian Student Showcase AND the Australian Showcase.
Plus we have a bar with drinks and some limited food. It’s going to be a big fun night.

Both sessions are rated: Unrestricted M (Mature) – Restricted to persons aged 15 and over unless accompanied by an adult.

Special offer

For every ticket purchased, you get 1 Reading Cinema voucher. This will allow you to go see something else on another big screen at another time.

To get your voucher, just come to the Box Office on the night to collect.
One voucher is per ticket. A double session ticket will only get you one voucher. Excludes free tickets.

BIG THANKS for Reading Cinemas for their support.

You can enter Treasury Theatre via two ways.
1) Macarthur Street. Best for tram and train. Walk to the square, there’s a set of stairs to the south. Entrance next to the stairs.
