Sydney’s chic micro-cinema Golden Age (80 Commonwealth St, Surry Hills) is helping SFF celebrate the tenth anniversary of our Official Competition by screening all nine films which have won the top award: the coveted Sydney Film Prize.
Every Tuesday between 4 April and 30 May (leading right up to the start of the festival), Golden Age will screen the recipient of each year’s Sydney Film Prize, an internationally recognized award acknowledging “cutting-edge, audacious and innovative” new films.
It all kicks off with Steve McQueen’s Hunger (2008) on Tuesday 4 April, followed by Nicolas Winding Refyn’s Bronson (2009), French wunderkind Xavier Dolan’s Heartbeats (2010), and A Separation (2011) by Asghar Farhadi’s (winner of the Best Foreign Language Oscar). Also in the program you’ll find the epic trilogy Arabian Nights (2015), Ryan Gosling in Only God Forgives (2013), and last year’s brilliant winner Aquarius (2016).
