Festival Info

Welcome to the 68th Sydney Film Festival. Australia’s premier international film festival takes place over 12 days and nights, showcasing the greatest, strangest and most exciting works that cinema has to offer.

In 2021, be the first to see new festival favourites and award-winners, dramas, documentaries, thrillers, comedies, cross-genre experiments and art-house cinema from around the world.

In light of the Sydney lockdown extension announced by the NSW Government on 28 July 2021, Sydney Film Festival has made the necessary decision to postpone the 68th edition of the Festival.

SFF remains committed to delivering the program that has been curated for 2021 and is exploring all options to shift the Festival dates to later in the year. We hope to make an announcement regarding the Festival’s new dates early next week.
