I’m having the same problem with gimp-2.10.32-7.fc38.x86_64.
It can’t open AVIF files.

It can be fixed if it is downloaded from or .rpm from fedora it can be fixed with installing libheif from rpmfusion but it is not the case when you download from registry flatpak store of fedora not flathub you can’t install that package and you are stuck so it is a bug here. I think avif support is needed. Whether with libavif or libheif.
As far as i know gimp still uses libheif for av1 support and heif have sometjing license or stuff.
A fix is required maybe with av1 support with libavif.
