Sydney Film Festival 2021 has announced new dates of 3-14 November, in the wake of the continuing COVID lockdown situation affecting the Greater Sydney area.

Traditionally held in June, the 2021 festival was originally scheduled for 18-29 August. However, stay-at-home rules mandated by the NSW government were recently extended until 28 August in the wake of rising case numbers. Cinemas and theatres are to remain closed as part of the restrictions, which began on 26 June 2021.
