Who the MUFF is Richard Wolstencroft?

When asked to describe himself, Richard Wolstencroft gives the answer you’d expect, “Hugely passionate about film in this country (Australia) and internationally”. “Complex” is his answer when we consider his relationships to the outside world!

An acclaimed director, Wolstencroft is best known for founding the Melbourne Underground Film Festival (that’s right, MUFF)! Coincidentally, MUFF emerged as a result of the Melbourne International Film Festival (MIFF) rejecting an early submission from Wolstencroft.

Pearls Before Swine wasn’t particularly violent or sadistic. It didn’t adhere to MIFFs particular criteria – it wasn’t government funded either.”
