The 65th Sydney Film Festival program for 2018 has been officially launched. Don't miss this great family-friendly festival.

Since 1954, the Sydney Film Festival has brought over 9000 of the best films from around th globe to Australian audiences. Now in its 65th year, the Festival is proud to present a celebration of contrast, from today's most gifted storytellers.

The 2018 Festival opens with the Australian premiere of The Breaker Upperers, a side-splittingly funny New Zealand film from writers-directors-stars Jackie van Beek and Madeleine Sami, presented by Distinguished Partner, Lexus Australia.   

Closing the Festival is heart-warming indie comedy, Hearts Beat Loud, starring Golden Globe winning Australian actress Toni Colette and Parks and Recreation’s Nick Offerman, about an ageing hipster dad forming an unlikely band with his reluctant talented daughter.

The Family Films program returns with six films screening at the Festival in daytime sessions over the weekend. Tweenagers will enjoy the world’s first movie adapted from inspired by an Instagram feed, Skate Kitchen, about a crew of all-girl skateboarders in New York and featuring millennial icon Jaden Smith; The Changeover, a film from New Zealand starring Timothy Spall and Lucy Lawless; and Dressage, winner of the Jury Award at the Berlinale’s Generation Section.

Kids and adults will love this program equally, designed to bring festival-quality feature-length films suitable for a variety of ages, such as Oscar-nominated animation The Breadwinner, and family adventure Maya the Bee: The Honey Games, voiced by an all-star Australian cast including Richard Roxburgh, The Umbilical Brothers’ Dave Collins and Shane Dundas, and Justine Clarke.
