2021 First Films

Welcome to a taste of Sydney Film Festival 2021. Enjoy our sneak peek of 22 new films to be featured in this year’s event.

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.

Want to get in first? Buy a Flexipass and secure your seats when the program drops. Flexipasses give you the best bang for your buck and can be shared between friends, with 10, 20 and 30 ticket discounts. We also have a special Youth Pass for young film fanatics.
