Well, I picked up my advance copy of the MIFF program today. You can get yours in The Age tomorrow (Friday). Checking my records, I got a non-final list (soft copy) late June last year, but no such luck this year. Needless to say, I'm poring over the list and trying to work out how to extract 30-40 films to see from a list of nearly 300. I'll post later which ones I'm going to focus on. It's always a job and a half trying to see everything one wants to (which is impossible - I'd like to see nearly all of them), so it gets down to what's on when, what doesn't conflict.
Like last year, I'll also post a list of which films will get a local release. There's about a dozen or so that I know of, but if anyone has the full list, please post it here or send it to me and I'll post it. Also, any tips of films to see, let me know.
