South Australia’s biennial Adelaide Film Festival celebrated its fifth edition this past February. Since its founding in 2002, the festival funds have contributed to the making of nearly 50 features, documentaries, shorts, animated films, and cross-media projects, most of which went on to have their world premieres at the festival. The track record of these festival-supported works has been both distinguished and impressive, with several features garnering critical renown and festival awards the world over.
MoMA presents a selection of these films—two of which have been featured in the Museum’s New Directors/New Films festival—including the New York premieres of a short and three features.
Organized by Laurence Kardish, Senior Curator, Department of Film.
