Sydney Film Festival is back 8-19 June 2022!
The State Theatre
Sydney Film Festival is back from June 8-19 and this year’s program is filled with 200+ of the boldest, brightest and best movies from around the world, programmed with talks from filmmakers and special events over 12 days and nights.

Each year, 12 films are selected for the Official Competition, which celebrates “courageous, audacious and cutting-edge” cinema with a $60,000 cash prize. Sydney Film Festival also presents eight other cash awards over the course of the festival including awards for documentary, shorts and Australian films.

For the Festival's Opening Night SFF is proud to present We Are Still Here. Mark the start of Sydney Film Festival with an unparalleled First Nations celebration. We Are Still Here is a strident story of endurance in the face of colonialism, racism, and attempted erasure. More about the First Nations films at this year's SFF will be revealed when the full program is released May 11th.

Find incredible programs for every interest, including Retrospectives, Family and Screenability, SFF has a film for every walk of life.

Take time to discover the work of veteran filmmaker Frederick Wiseman at this year’s Festival. Described by Pauline Kael as “the most sophisticated intelligence in documentary”, Wiseman’s films have invited us into rarely seen worlds, evoking the deep empathy with which his films are made. As part of its retrospective program, SFF will screen TITICUT FOLLIES, LA DANSE – THE PARIS OPERA BALLET, CITY HALL and many others at the Art Gallery of NSW and Dendy Newtown.

Want to make it a family affair? Round up the kids and head down to the cinema from 8-19 June for the 2022 Sydney Film Festival. Watch features, documentaries and shorts, all framed for kids - and the kid in all of us. Meet a friend from another world in MAIKA, RIDE THE WAVE with a real life 12 year old world champion and hang out with Emilia and her guinea pig in SUPER FURBALL SAVES THE FUTURE. Fantastical family fun awaits at the cinema this June.

Want to watch from another perspective? Screenability will be returning to Sydney Film Festival for its sixth year for the 69th Festival. Presented in collaboration with Screen NSW, Screenability provides a platform for filmmakers with disability to put their stories on the screen on their own terms. In both documentary and fiction, these films put a spotlight on people with disability and their experiences. Watch award winners, I DIDN'T SEE YOU, STRAIGHTEN UP AND FLY RIGHT and SHADOW, only at SFF.

And there is still more to come, the full program releases on the 11th of May when you can explore the full 200+ film program and plan out your Festival schedule!
