From 3-14 June 2015, the 62nd Sydney Film Festival offers Sydneysiders another exciting season of cinema amidst a whirlwind of premieres, red-carpet openings, panel discussions, international guests and more.
Each year the Festival programming team curates 12 days of cinema sourced from world-famous film festivals, including Cannes, Sundance, Toronto and the Berlinale, as well as Australia’s finest local productions.
The Festival tells incredible Australian and international stories, and celebrates world cinema, filmmakers, our city and lovers of film everywhere.
Join us for screenings of around 200 films from over 50 countries. A public program of free and ticketed exhibitions, talks, panels, parties and live-music events focuses on enriching the Festival experience.
The Festival takes place at the State Theatre, Dendy Opera Quays, Art Gallery of NSW, Event Cinemas George Street, the Festival Hub at Sydney Town Hall and the Hayden Orpheum Picture Palace Cremorne. New venues, soon to be announced, guarantee greater expansion of the Festival’s footprint with 280 screenings happening across Sydney in both CBD and suburban locations.
Festival Director Nashen Moodley says: “With the 2015 Festival drawing closer, we are looking forward to announcing a full film and events program in the coming months. In true Sydney Film Festival tradition, we’ll be offering up a diverse range of films and experiences, with entertainment, culture, creativity and storytelling to feature throughout.”
A sneak preview of the 2015 program will be announced in April with the full Festival program revealed in May.
