Arguably Melbourne's most iconic film festival of the year, MIFF offers an incredible range of films each year, from local Australian filmmakers to the international. In fact, it was during the 2014 edition of the festival that I had the pleasure of seeing "A Hard Day" before the film had landed distribution, so the quality of the films are as impressive as their range.
