The Sydney Film Festival Returns in June


From Wednesday 6 June to Sunday 17 June 2018, the 65th Sydney Film Festival brings the world’s best new films to Sydney for 12 days and nights of inspiring and entertaining premieres, talks, parties, international director and actor guests and more.

Audiences will dive into 12 days of cinematic splendour, both world class features and fascinating documentaries plucked straight from Cannes, Sundance, Berlinale, and many more prestigious festivals on the international circuit.”

Over 250 films from the four corners of the globe will screen alongside a public program of free and ticketed talks and parties that will enrich the Festival experience. Over 150 local and international festival guests will attend the Festival, including directors, actors and industry professionals.

The Festival takes place across Greater Sydney: at the State Theatre, Event Cinemas George Street, Dendy Opera Quays, Dendy Newtown, Randwick Ritz, Hayden Orpheum Picture Palace Cremorne,  Art Gallery of NSW, Casula Powerhouse, Skyline Drive-In Blacktown, the Festival Hub at Sydney Town Hall and SFF Outdoor Screen in Pitt Street Mall.
