The 2011 Melbourne International Film Festival (MIFF) lineup has been announced and can be now found online. It runs between July 21 and August 7. Unfortunately I live in Sydney and can't really afford to make the trip to Melbourne for the period, but there certainly are some exceptional films playing this year.
MIFF is headlined by anticipated films such as: 13 Assasssins, Another Earth, Armadillo, Attenberg, Beginners, Cave of Forgotten Dreams, Drive (closing night), Elite Squad: The Enemy Within, The Fairy (opening night), The Forgiveness of Blood, The Future, The Guard, Le Havre, Jane Eyre, The Kid With A Bike, Martha Marcy May Marlene, Melancholia, Nowegian Wood, Once Upon a Time in Anatolia, Polisse, POM Wonderful Presents: The Greatest Movie Ever Sold, Project Nim, Senna, A Separation, Submarine, Super, Tabloid, Take Shelter, Terri, This is England '86, Tiny Furniture, Tomboy, Toomelah, Troll Hunter, The Turin Horse, Tyrannosaur and Win Win. Many of these are continuing their stint at the Australian festival circuit having also screened at the Sydney Film Festival (SFF) last month.
Also playing at MIFF this year are The Big Sleep, The King of Comedy, La Dolce Vita and The Third Man. The entire lineup can be found listed A-Z by film (here) or you can check out the daily schedule (here).
