The University of Sydney
The University of Sydney has partnered with Sydney Film Festival to present this year’s Freak Me Out program, our sidebar dedicated to everything bizarre, from the truly out-there arthouse fare through to pulp slashers, psychological thrillers and spinetingling scream fests. The University of Sydney also presents a Meet the Filmmakers talk at Dendy Newtown moderated by Freak Me Out programmer Richard Kuipers, ahead of the screening of Ant Timpson’s new film The Field Guide to Evil.
