Access and Inclusion

Sydney Film Festival welcomes all visitors to screenings and events, and makes every effort to ensure the program is accessible to our whole audience. All films in the Screenability program are equipped with closed captioning and audio description.


With the exception of 2 films, all other films in the SFF Virtual Edition are unclassified.

These unclassified films have been assessed as either requiring no audience age restriction, or having the equivalent MA 15+ or R 18+ classification category age restrictions. Please check the indicative age rating for each film on its individual page before buying a ticket and viewing.

Warning: Films with an indicative audience age restriction of R 18+ or MA 15+ may contain elements such as sex scenes, drug use, suicide, aggressive themes, abuse, and violent acts including sexual assault, that are either respectively high or strong in impact.
