One of the World’s Oldest Film Festivals

Interesting article in The Age about the history of MIFF.

I'd heard MIFF was the oldest film festival in Australia. I had not realised it's one of the oldest in the world. According to Wikipedia -
 "The first major film festival was held in Venice in 1932; the other major and oldest film festivals of the world are: Festival del film Locarno (1946),Karlovy Vary International Film Festival (1946), Edinburgh International Film Festival (1947), Cannes Film Festival (1947) , Melbourne International Film Festival (1951) and Berlin International Film Festival (1951)"
