The Children's International Film Festival (CHIFF) brings a curated selection of feature and short local and international cinema dedicated to our youngest film buffs. Catering for children aged four up to 16 years, the festival's program ranges from non-verbal films for younger children, through to a more challenging mix of foreign and English language films from all over the world, perfect for older film fans. All of the new films in the CHIFF program are Australian premieres, handpicked from world-class film festivals such as Berlin, Toronto, and Seattle. These films rarely get a release outside of their home countries, so CHIFF provides one of the only ways for families to catch them on the big screen in Australia.
