The Australian premiere of Ethel and Ernest will take place at the Melbourne International Film Festival on the 6th of August. Further showings will be on the 13th and 19th, and the showing on the 13th will be captioned for deaf and low hearing audience members.

MIFF has been continuously running since 1952, making it the leading film festival in Australia and one of the world’s oldest film festivals, alongside Cannes and Berlin. None of the feature films in the festival are in competition with each other. The competition section is only for short films.

“First-time director Roger Mainwood joins forces with Raymond Briggs, one of the world’s most beloved illustrators, for Ethel and Ernest, a deeply affectionate and very British adaptation of Briggs’ testament to his mother and father, and the lost England they represented. Beautifully animated and almost unbearably poignant, Ethel and Ernest is a gentle, thoughtful portrait of two lives so ordinary they cannot help but be extraordinary in every way.”
