HOT List: Melbourne International Film Festival 2012 picks

Last night RM and I attended the members preview of Melbourne International Film Festival 2012 just so we could get our hands on the program before public release online today and in hard copy this Friday 13 July.

As is our annual tradition, we spent the night making a longlist and then shortlist of 20 films for our two mini-passes (1o films per pass and 3 free daytime weekday sessions for those who don’t work 9-5 jobs). If you are feeling a bit overwhelmed by the program, here are our final picks for 2012 (for bonus points, guess who’s going to see what films!).

Here are the films we liked that didn’t make the final cut, mostly due to scheduling conflicts and prior commitments.

Finally a bit of a plug for joining as a MIFF member. Not only have I secured my tickets ahead of the general public, I got my mini-pass at a discounted member price of $125 and the best advantage is that I get priority entry to all sessions – no lining up in the cold! Throughout the year you can use your MIFF membership card to receive concession ticket prices to many cinemas and MIFF hold free member screenings of upcoming films and give away free tickets to films and events regularly. Well worth the money!

Happy cinema-going!
