Full line-up for Melbourne International Film Festival revealed

Victoria, prepare thyself. The entire line-up of films playing at the 60th Melbourne International Film Festival has been revealed. For those of you worried that the best features had already been leaked,  rest easy in the knowledge that the team at MIFF still had a few aces in their pocket.

Opening the fest on the 21st of July will be vaudevillian charmer The Fairy, while Nicolas Winding Refn’s Cannes hit Drive will close out proceedings on the 6th of August (although there will be a full day of films on the 7th).

Joining the 25 previously announced Cannes features and First Glance pics: Sundance and SXSW hits Another EarthOur Idiot Brother and Natural Selection, documentaries Being Elmo and Page One: Inside the New York Times, Sydney Film Fest-alum Jane Eyre and Beginners, a batch of extreme Asian features such as Zebraman 2: Attack on Zebra City and Cold Fish as well as the highly anticipated adaptation of the Aussie book The Slap.

There will also be a number of surprise screenings on the final day of the fest. You can purchase tickets right now! Go!

Finally, I am truly excited to reveal that I will be attending MIFF and undertaking the 60 Films in 17 Days Blog-A-Thon, as will fellow Quickflixer Jess Lomas. We are humbled and honoured to join fellow critics Luke Buckmaster, Thomas Caldwell, Glenn Dunks and Brad Nguyen. We hope you enjoy our coverage of the festival, and encourage you to join us on this phantasmagoric adventure of sights, sounds, and perhaps even smells, of MIFF 2011.
