It’s one of the most recognised film festivals on the planet, so there’s no prouder moment when an Australian film has been selected for the program of the Cannes Film Festival. But don’t stress, we don’t all have to travel France to catch a glimpse of The Sapphires.
The 61st Melbourne International Film Festival is proud to announce that this year’s festival will open with the Australian premiere of the film in one of the most anticipated events on the Australian film calendar.
Australia’s brightest stars and biggest names in film and entertainment will walk the red carpet, all for a night dedicated to this one film starring Australian screen stars, Deborah Mailman and Jessica Mauboy. MIFF will run from August 2 – 19.
