Sydney Film Festival
The Sydney Film Festival is a film festival held annually in Sydney over 12 days each June. It features a diverse range of movies from around the world, featuring documentaries, short films, retrospectives, films for families, and animations.
The first Sydney Film Festival was hosted in June 1954 at the University of Sydney. It was a small three-day event with only 1,200 tickets available. The first festival sold out, and the following festivals quickly outgrew the university’s capabilities, becoming one of Australia’s largest film festivals.
