Sydney Film Festival introduces generations of filmgoers to the power of cinematic voices and stories from around the world. Films are not just entertainment but help us understand and even change the world. And films resonate more when shared in full cinemas presented by the filmmakers themselves.
Sydney Film Festival is committed to bringing audiences together with not only films, but filmmakers: from Sydneysiders at the State Theatre to first-time short filmmakers at Events George Street Cinemas and right through to the Traveling Film Festival presenting documentaries to school children in Alice Springs.
As a not-for-profit, we exist through support from you – our audience.
