The Sydney Film Festival is one of the most popular events in Sydney and is held over two weeks in June every year.
As the name suggests, Sydney Film Festival is all about celebrating local and international film with 12 days of premiers, talks and events.
The Sydney Film Festival list of events include showcasing a selection of feature films, arthouse films, documentaries and short films. Families will be excited to know that some of these include a number of children’s and family films.
This festival is celebrated all across the city, with films shown in various venues all across the CBD. Some of the more popular venues include the State Theatre, as well as cinemas in the CBD, Newtown, Cremorne and Western Sydney.
Tickets can be purchased for individual events/shows, or you can purchase a Flexi Pass which gives you access to 10, 20 or 30 shows. There is also an Opening Night Film and Gala as well as a Closing Night Gala held at the State Theatre.
The festival also honours entrants by giving out awards to the best documentaries, fiction and feature films of the event. 12 Films are selected to take part in the competition with the winner taking home $60,000.
