ABOUT SYDNEY FILM FESTIVAL
The Sydney Film Festival – returning from Wednesday 18 August to Sunday 29 August 2021, will become one of the first major festivals in the world to return to cinemas when it premieres its much anticipated 68th Edition.
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 Director Nashen Moodley says, “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 the four corners of 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 9 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.
From Wednesday 18 August to Sunday 29 August 2021, the 68th Sydney Film Festival offers Sydneysiders another exciting season of cinema amidst a whirlwind of premieres, red-carpet openings, in-depth discussions, film guests and more.
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. For more information, visit: sff.org.au.
