This year’s Melbourne International Film Festival is offering more online sessions than ever.

The Melbourne International Film Festival is an annual highlight for film lovers in the city – but there’s more than one way to enjoy it.

This year, MIFF’s online streaming service MIFF Play features a bigger online program than ever, expanding into homes Australia-wide for 17 days from August 6 to August 22.

This year’s digital line-up of over 60 films (with another 30 features yet to be announced) includes two dozen critically acclaimed documentaries alongside a large assortment of this year’s drama and comedy titles. You’ll also find a selection from the music on film collection, plus a wide range of shorts and special features.

As well as the paid content there are a number of sessions that can be accessed for free, including a selection of MIFF Talks (presented by the University of Melbourne) and the Australian Shorts and Best MIFF Shorts collections.

The films themselves can be purchased via the MIFF website, and there’s both Android and iOS versions of the MIFF 69 app available to enable you to view and Chromecast or AirPlay the films you buy.

Our advice? Get in early – despite being online, access to some films is still limited and sessions will definitely sell out.
