67TH SYDNEY FILM FESTIVAL: VIRTUAL EDITION
Sydney Film Festival has just launched their digital program — a virtual and national edition available for all viewers around the country! Bringing the State Theatre to you, the program includes 2020 highlights from Australian filmmakers and documentarians, as well as a selection of cutting-edge films from European women directors.
This year’s Documentary Australia Foundation Award for Best Australian Documentary competition is online, national (yes, the rest of Australia can join in the fun!) and packed with amazing talent, with the added bonus of raising funds for our struggling industry.
See the Australian documentary lineup below, and view the entire SFF program here. There are a limited number of screenings available for each film, so book early to avoid disappointment!
