The Melbourne Underground Film Festival is back, folks!

After 23 years Australia's most controversial Indy film festival returns. We could say at this stage we keep the festival going out of pure spite for the people who have tried to stop us! But really we do it out of pure love of indy Local and OS cinema, especially genre, and questioning the absurd status quo woke gravy train that is the Australian Screen Culture and the film funding scene.

MUFF has discovered the greatest indy film talent the last 23 years from James Wan to Patrick Hughes to Greg McLean to Zak Hilditch to Stuart Simpson to Scott Ryan and Mike Retter....and we are gonna just keep going ahead and doing that.

We are honoured to have International guest Larry Wessel at the festival whose ground breaking screen work and practice is something to investigate and be part of for MUFF 23.

Join us for great films, great friends, great networking and rebelling against dull screen culture in Oz! Thanks to the whole MUFF Team, entries and supporters, as usual, esp Frank, Dom and Efisia this year.

Cheers, Richard Wolstencroft - MUFF Festival Director
