"The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease for ever to be able to do it." – JM Barrie, Peter Pan

Twelve-year-old Dylan lives with his father in the West Australian outback. One day at school Dylan discovers he is extremely good at making and flying paper planes. While attempting to refine and develop his newly realised ability, Dylan finds himself caught up in the world of competitive paper-plane making, leading to new friendships, new rivalries and new revelations about his own family.

Supported by the MIFF Premiere Fund, Paper Planes is a magical new World Premiere from writer/director Robert Connolly (Tim Winton's The Turning, MIFF 2013). Featuring a cast of Australia's finest, including Sam Worthington, Deborah Mailman and David Wenham, and introducing Ed Oxenbould, this is a modern tale of friendship and family and the joy of learning to spread one's wings.

MIFF recommends ages 8+
Robert Connolly and members of the cast are festival guests.
