Sydney Film Festival returns to cinemas in August

Sydney Film Festival returns to cinemas in August
May 18, 2021

The Sydney Film Festival will become one of the first major festivals in the world to return to cinemas when it premieres its much anticipated 68th Edition from Wednesday 18th August to Sunday 29th August 2021.

The 2021 program will take over cinemas across Sydney, with excited audiences gathering once more to explore our times through the medium of film. SFF’s exceptionally curated program will give festival audiences the opportunity to travel through the eyes of the world’s most exciting filmmaking talent, exploring this year’s most poignant issues, subjects, people, and places, at a historic moment in time.

Sydney Film Festival is a major event on the New South Wales cultural calendar and is one of the world’s longest-running film festivals receiving support from the NSW Government through Screen NSW, the Federal Government through Screen Australia and the City of Sydney.

Sydney Film Festival Director Nashen Moodley notes “The 68th Edition will capture the flux, and intersecting currents, of the moment. It feels historic to be able to present the remarkable haul of work that has emerged around the world during COVID-19.”

Films from across the globe will screen in conjunction with a public program of talks, parties and guests, enriching the festival experience. The Festival takes places across Greater Sydney, with venues to be announced in June.

The first titles in this year’s program will be announced on Wednesday 9th June, with the full Festival program revealed in July.

Sydney Film Festival’s 68th Edition follows a historic Virtual Edition and Awards in 2020, a global debut as the only Australian Festival to join more than 20 of the world’s most prominent film festivals in the ten-day ‘We Are One’ digital event, and in early 2021, a successful Summer Season at the State Theatre, and sold-out Wong Kar Wai retrospective.
