A Sydney Film Festival Subscription is a set curated program — perfect for lovers of film interested in a wide variety of cinema from across the globe.

An unmatched way to experience Sydney Film Festival


Subscribing for either the day or night sessions at the majestic State Theatre, over the entire Festival, means that you have your own dedicated seats, and that you can come and go as you please! It’s also the best value way to see a huge array of films from all around the world — including all the Official Competition films.

You’ll be part of a special community of fellow film lovers, being some of the first in the world to see remarkable new films from the best seats in the house. Hear from our programming team and the filmmakers at most of the sessions and spend an incredible 12 days immersing yourself in a world of cinema.

Subscriptions are only available to customers 18 years of age and over. For seating references, download a PDF of the State Theatre seating map.
