Late Night Bizarre

Admission is restricted to 18+

IMPORTANT: Film classification regulations in Australia require
all films to either be formally classified OR restricted to an audience of 18 years of age and over. Most festivals do not have the resources to do this and it is for this reason alone that we are not able to admit any person under the age of 18 years to the main AIAF screenings.

Australian animation turns up in festivals all over the world and is
recognised for its diversity and inventiveness. The Australian Panorama showcases our sensational local talent before the program hits the road to tour the country.
