Festival Description: 
Australian filmmakers and global film directors will come together to celebrate the best of film. Going head to head in a film competition where the winners get a chance to screen all over the world!
Australia has, for many years, cultivated some of the best independent work the market has ever seen. From filmmakers to actors, Australia has exported some of the best talent, and arguably some of the most imaginative work for generations. The Sydney International Film Festival will see our festival in Sydney as the perfect bridge between entry level work and full professional status. A great way to inspire next generation work and an instantly romantic and exciting destination for outsiders to screen their projects.
