Sydney Film Festival’s popular series of screenings at Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre returns for a sixth year, bigger, better and bolder than ever!
Every month from February-November you can experience the best in festival-quality features and documentaries, specially selected for Casula Powerhouse by the Sydney Film Festival programming team. From greatest hits of previous festivals, to films that they really would’ve liked to have shown (but couldn’t for one reason or another…it’s complicated sometimes!), you will experience cinema way beyond what you’ll ever find in a multiplex.
Better still, at any or all of these screenings, you can add on a fantastic meal created especially for each event by the brand-new Head Chef at Bellbird, Casula Powerhouse’s in-house bistro.
