What is CHIFF?

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 fourth year in 2022 with a jam-packed program of features from across the world. 

CHIFF screens 28 May - 13 June in Melbourne and Sydney: at Classic Cinemas in Elsternwick, Lido Cinemas in Hawthorn, Cameo Cinemas in Belgrave, and Ritz Cinemas in Randwick (NSW).

How do I get tickets?

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. 

How much are tickets?

All single tickets are $13.50, with family passes for individual sessions (2x adults and 2x children, or 1x adult and 3x children) available for $48. If you’re a group of 10 or over, you can access discounted $10 tickets - purchase these at the cinema box office, or by emailing info@chiff.com.au.

How do I know which film is right for my family?

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.

What is CHIFF's Covid safe plan?

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.
