Calling all movie buffs - 2021 is the 68th year of the fabulous annual Sydney Film Festival and they're gearing up for quite a festival this year!
After being cancelled in 2020 due to COVID, we're thrilled to hear that the Sydney Film Festival will be going ahead in 2021. From 3 to the 21 November, the 68th annual Sydney Film Festival will take place in cinemas across Sydney and online, showcasing a multitude of exciting cinematic offerings; plenty of which are family-friendly and a great way to engage kids in a variety of different world issues.
Our picks include the ultra-joyful tale of friendship Even Mice Belong in Heaven, as well as the action-packed animated feature Felix and the Hidden Treasure. For older kids, Nowhere Special is a heart-wrenching drama telling the tale of a terminally ill single father searching for a foster family for his son.
The festival offers something for everyone—there are dramas, documentaries, thrillers, comedies, cross-genre experiments and art-house cinema from around the world.
The Sydney Film Festival will take place across some of Sydney’s most iconic cinemas from 3-14 November and On-Demand (online) from 12-21 November. Book your tickets today!
