CHIFF is the Children’s International Film Festival: a film festival celebrating the best short and feature length films for audiences aged 3-14. Established in 2018, CHIFF celebrates its fifth year in 2023 with a jam-packed program of features from across the world.
CHIFF screens 27 May - 12 June in Melbourne and Sydney: at Classic Cinemas in Elsternwick, Lido Cinemas in Hawthorn, Cameo Cinemas in Belgrave, and Ritz Cinemas in Randwick (NSW).
Tickets for CHIFF can be purchased online at chiff.com.au (navigate to your film and session of choice using the 'films and events' tab), through our cinema partner websites, or at the box office of participating cinemas.
All single tickets are $15, with family passes for individual sessions (2x adults and 2x children, or 1x adult and 3x children) available for $52. Cinema Members can access $13 tickets (max of two discounted tickets per member). If you’re a group of 20 or over, you can access discounted tickets - purchase these by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Tickets booked online or over the phone will incur a $1.70 booking fee.
CHIFF programs can be picked up at all participating cinemas, or downloaded digitally below.
Age recommendations for films are provided by the Children’s International Film Festival as guidelines, and specific information about language and themes are provided in the detailed description of each film. All assessments by CHIFF are subjective, and consideration by a parent or guardian is advised to assess whether a film is a good fit for your family. CHIFF has received a classification exemption from the Australian Classification Board.
All films in languages other than English will screen with English subtitles.
The CHIFF team is working hard to ensure that everyone's return to the cinema is a safe and happy one.
— If patrons aren't feeling well and need to stay home, we will facilitate swaps to another scheduled festival session.
