That time of year when you get to curl up in the cinema with a choc top, some popcorn and an avant garde film is here again. This year's Melbourne International Film Festival screens some unmissable features, documentaries and shorts. 

The Grandmaster, from Hong Kong director Wong Kar-wai, is a martial arts biopic based on the life of Bruce Lee's master, Ip Man. Jodowrowsky's Dune, directed by Frank Pavich, follows Chilean-French director Alejandro Jodorowsky's failed attempt to adapt Frank Herbert's Dune, which David Lynch successfully adapted later on.

Also not to be missed is Listen Up Philip, in which Jason Schwartzman (Bored to Death and numerous Wes Anderson films) plays a self-absorbed down-and-out writer who is allegedly loosely based on American writer Philip Roth. And if you want some Australian flavour, Felony, directed by Matthew Saville (The Slap) and written by Joel Edgerton – who also stars in the film – is an emotionally tense cop-drama set in Sydney.
