Sydney Film Festival welcomes all visitors to screenings and events, and makes every effort to ensure the program is accessible to our whole audience. See access and inclusion page, and venues pages for more info.

Most films in the Family section are classified for all ages, but please note age recommendations for these films.

Discounted tickets will be available to 15-20 year olds for select screenings during the festival, via Playwave.


Ensure your sessions, and Flexipass selections are correct prior to payment as there are no refunds on any item sold.
