Feedback from festival filmmaker guests who were part of MIFF 2015

"Once again we would like to thank you for a wonderful festival. It was a real privilege and pleasure to have Another Country world premiere with MIFF. We couldn't have wished for better screenings or greater support of the film. Mr Gulpilil revelled in the fuss that was made of him." -Molly Reynolds and Rolf de Heer (Another Country)

"Katherine and I wanted to write and thank you and the entire MIFF team for finding a place for Stories at MIFF this year. It was so fantastic for us get the chance to show it to home crowds on a big screen. It was very special to hear audiences responding and laughing during the screenings. Congrats on a great festival, we were really honoured to be a part of it." - Rita Walsh and Katherine Slattery (Stories I Want To Tell You in Person)

"Thanks for having me in Melbourne. I really enjoyed myself and felt people were very into the movie." - Alex Ross Perry (Queen of Earth)

"I couldn't have wished for a more fabulous premiere then at MIFF." - Nicole Ma (Putupurri and the Rainmakers)

"The whole night was an absolute buzz and I appreciate very much all you did to make it happen. You are great leaders of an amazing team." -John Moore (Putuparri and the Rainmakers)
