SYDNEY, 8 May, 2024: The 71st Sydney Film Festival (SFF) is all set to mesmerise movie-buffs, with  a lineup of around 200 movies from across the world from 5 to 16 June, with seven Indian movies, including the Cannes selected Payal Kapadia’s ‘All We Imagine As Light’,  in the competition section. Others in the competition section include Yorgos Lanthimos’ latest Kinds of Kindness, starring Emma Stone, fresh from the Cannes Competition, the World Premiere of Aussie boxing drama Kid Snow, the first Indian film to appear in the Cannes Competition in 30 years, Lee Tamahori’s intense drama The Convert with Guy Pearce, The Bikeriders starring Jodie Comer, Austin Butler and Tom Hardy, and recent top award-winners: Berlinale Golden Bear Dahomey, and Sundance Grand Jury Prize winner Sujo.

“The 71st Sydney Film Festival unfurls a canvas of bold narratives and remarkable visions, mirroring the evolving dynamics of our world,” said Director Nashen Moodleyof the Sydney Film Festival Director at the official launch. “This year, we are proud to present films that challenge, entertain, and provoke dialogue, from the sweeping landscapes of Australian dramas to the complex human stories from global cinema.”

Minister for the Arts John Graham said the Sydney Film Festival is one of the most anticipated events in the city’s cultural calendar. “The Sydney Film Festival is an important moment in our city’s cultural calendar. One of the reasons the festival continues to go from strength to strength is the power of going to the cinema – coming together in a shared experience of escaping day to day life, sitting down in a theatre, and looking into this kaleidoscope of human stories. There’s something special about sharing that experience with hundreds other people that I believe will keep this festival going for another 71 years.”

The festival has Australian documentaries, features, international documentaries, The Box Set (Australian series), Sustainable Future Award, Sounds of Screen, Europe Voices of Women in Films, First Nations Award, Family Films, Freak Me Out, Screenability program, Ousmane Sembene – A revolutionary with a camera, Nancy Sovaka, Classics Restored, The Dendy Awards, The Hub, and much more.
