Catering for children aged 3-16, the festival's program ranges from non-verbal films for the miniature movie lover, through to a more challenging mix of foreign and English-language films from all over the world, perfect for older budding cinephiles.
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.
After a successful launch in 2018, CHIFF returns for a fifth festival in May 2023, once again presenting a jam-packed line-up of carefully curated feature films from around the globe.
