Sydney Film Festival

6 June 2018 - 17 June 2018

Sydney Film Festival is one of the longest running film festivals in the world screening feature films, documentaries & short films across twelve days every winter.

The world’s best new films come to Sydney every June for 12 days and nights of inspiring and entertaining premieres, talks and parties. Be among the first in Australia to see the greatest, strangest and most exciting work that cinema has to offer.  

Sydney Film Festival takes place at the State Theatre, as well as cinemas in the CBD, Newtown, Cremorne, Western Sydney and more, screening more than 200 films you won’t usually find in the multiplex. 

12 films are selected for the Official Competition, which celebrates “courageous, audacious and cutting-edge” cinema with a $60,000 cash prize. Sydney Film Festival also presents seven other cash awards over the course of the festival – you can read about them all here.
