Sydney Film Festival is committed to showcasing work by First Nation filmmakers from around the world. Throughout the Festival you’ll find examples of outstanding Indigenous cinema, from the red sands of Western Australia to the snowy landscapes of the Arctic Circle. This outstanding selection will surprise, provoke and push boundaries.
Powerful collaborations between non-Indigenous and Aboriginal filmmakers and communities, as a prelude to Aboriginal produced work that burst onto screens from the 1990s.
