Sicko opens MIFF

The Melbourne International Film Festival is the biggest in Australia, and this year will be no exception. Opening on the 25th of July with the Australian premiere of controversial documentary filmmaker Michael Moore’s latest Sicko, there are 19 days of titillating screenings guaranteed to keep you coming back for more. Richard Moore takes the helm for his first festival, and program snippets include this year’s Palm d’Or winner 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Hours, as well as the world premiere of the first film completed through the Tropfest Feature Program, September (working title) by Peter Carstairs. There promises to be a huge lineup of Australian film to keep you busy, so Melbourne residents look out for your copy of the full program in The Age on the 13th of July, when you will also be able to find it online. Festival passes and tickets to opening and closing night are now on sale through their website www.melbournefilmfestival.com.au, and individual tickets will go on sale on the 13th of July as well.

Make sure you don’t miss out on your chance to attend the 56th incarnation of this fabulous festival!
