Over the coming weeks the 67th Sydney Film Festival will be taking one of Sydney’s showpiece events to audiences at home around the country as it goes virtual and national for the first time. It’s heartening that this has come at a time when we need to be connected, to share stories, more than ever.
Announcements May 26 2020 by Deanne Weir
Welcome to SFF 2020. We are proud to present Sydney Film Festival: Virtual Edition and Awards, delivered entirely online to a national audience for the first time in its 67 years. Albeit not shared together in the dark under the State Theatre chandelier; the Festival will continue to be a lens on the world and times, a trusted guide, a forum for ideas, conversations, community, and change.
