  • About
  • Submission Info

The Sydney Film Festival is one of the longest running events of its kind in the world. Each year the festival brings the best new films from around the world to audiences right here in Sydney. As well as brand new features from over 40 countries, we screen short films, Australian films, documentaries and archive titles, many of which are recently restored. The festival hosts a number of awards to recognise excellence in filmmaking, including the Dendy Awards for Australian Short Films, (which are Academy Award eligible), the FOXTEL Australian Documentary Awards and the Official Competition, which celebrates ‘courageous and audacious filmmaking’.

The festival is for everyone. Whether you’re a dedicated film buff who takes two weeks off work and buys a subscription, or a busy film fan eager to catch the latest movie before its Australian release, you are welcome at the Sydney Film Festival. There are a wide range of FREE talks and forums to help you make the most out of the films you see.

Is this festival exclusively animation?: No - this is a film festival but with a specific animation category
