Melbourne International Film Festival Opening Night Gala I'm So Excited!
It’s time to get excited! Join the Melbourne International Film Festival on the red carpet for all the glitz and glamour of Opening Night. The Opening Night of the festival will be an unforgettable night of cinema, celebrity and celebration.
The Opening Night film, Pedro Almodóvar’s I’m So Excited!, gleefully returns the director to the raunchy camp of his Pepi, Luci, Bom and the Other Girls (MIFF 1991) days, while delivering a biting satire on contemporary Spanish politics – the biting in this case being playful and sexually suggestive. With a top-notch cast of Spain’s finest acting talent and hyper-real visuals, I’m So Excited! is a screwball farce in vintage Almodóvarian style.
After the film, raise a glass of bubbly and mingle with the stars at Hamer Hall, where the festivities will continue on into the wee hours, aided by an open bar, tasty canapés and great music.
