Melbourne Welcomes It’s Own Documentary Festival

Melbourne Welcomes It’s Own Documentary Festival

The Melbourne Documentary Film Festival is Melbourne, Australia’s own competitive documentary film festival. Showcasing a wide array of documentaries from Sporting, Environmental, LGBTI, International, Australian and Music documentaries. Direct from some of the best documentary festivals in the world like SXSW, IDFA, Doc Edge, Doc NYC.

Lyndon Stone, Festival Director is proud to announce that 3 local documentaries: Coffee Man, Spoke and Inside Fighter will open the inaugural festival.

Jeff Hann, on making Coffee Man: “Making The Coffee Man has been the biggest project I’ve ever done, that has taught me many lessons about film making and I’m very grateful. Having the right people to support the project with likemindedness made it easier and a lot of fun too! It’s fantastic to be part of the Melbourne Documentary Film Festival’s first year. I’m looking forward to watching the other films and talking to other film makers about their experiences.”

Emily Baker on Spoke: “I never really expected this film to get finished. I had never directed before and I was daunted by the task, let alone what seemed like the impossibility of crossing the country on a bicycle. To be screening the film on opening night of the MDFF means a lot to me. I’m so grateful my home town is supporting filmmakers like myself.”

Nick Barkla on Inside Fighter: “Inside Fighter really is a Melbourne story and I’m thrilled for Frank that his family and friends can attend the Australian premiere. It was Frank’s courage that inspired me to make it, so in many ways this is my gift to him for allowing us all to share in his bruising, thrilling, trans-formative journey.”

See Something Wrong? Have A Suggestion?

Though the Beta testing is well in the past, we at Max It are always working to improve the site, keep the gears oiled, and all around tinker to improve the experience for both the indie filmmakers that submit content, as well as the indie film lovers that drop in for their daily fix.

Just like suspicious activity, we ask that if you see something wrong, have a suggestion, or would just like to tell us just what you like or dislike about the site, you let us know.

We've a lot of things still to add (No Peeking Behind The Curtain!), but we want to make sure what is current online is working without issues. To do this each day we'll add more articles, tweak a feature here, remove a feature there. Just to keep things moving along in the right direction.

To let us know of anything, just click on Contact in the Main Menu at the top and give us as detailed a description of the problem, or suggestion and we'll do our best to look to see if and how it can be fixed, or added!

As always, we thank you for your support!
