Festival Hub

The Festival Hub at Town Hall is Sydney’s most extraordinary multi-function pop-up, combining everything you want from a festival bar with plenty of new and surprising ways to round out your total Sydney Film Festival experience.

It’s a lounge, it’s a bar, it’s a gallery space. You can find food, buy discounted tickets, plan your festival viewing with a Program Guru, take in a talk upstairs or party on downstairs at events celebrating everything from Strike a Pose Silent Disco to Viva Cuba Party to Sing Street 1985 School Disco.

Here is just a taste of a packed calendar of things to see and do and hear in the Hub.
