What is Sydney Film Festival?
The Sydney Film Festival is one of the longest running events of its kind in the world. Each year the festival brings the best new local and international films to audiences in Sydney. As well as premiering features from over 40 countries, SFF screens short films, documentaries and retrospective titles. The festival hosts a number of awards to recognise excellence in filmmaking, including the Official Competition, Dendy Awards for Australian Short Films, (which are Academy Award eligible) and Australian Documentary Prize. Sydney Film Festival, which turns 63 in 2016, will take place in 8-19 June in 11 locations across Sydney.
SFF also runs the Travelling Film Festival, taking mini-festivals to 19 venues across regional NSW and Queensland and the Northern Territory.
Who can come to Sydney Film Festival? The festival is for everyone. Whether you're a dedicated film buff who takes two weeks off work and buys a subscription, or a busy film fan eager to catch the latest movie before its Australian release, you are welcome at the Sydney Film Festival. There are a wide range of FREE talks and forums to help you make the most out of the films you see. Please note most films at Sydney Film Festival are unclassified and are restricted to adults aged 18 years and over. Check the classification of films before purchasing your ticket.
What do we do for the rest of the year? When the festival is over, you don't have to wait another year before you can enjoy films with us. We run the Travelling Film Festival, taking mini-festivals to 15 venues across regional NSW, the Northern Territory and rural Queensland.
