The Sydney Film Festival 2011

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 forty 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’.
