Sydney Film Festival: Summer Season

January 15, 2021 - January 17, 2021

For the first-time ever, Sydney Film Festival joins Sydney Festival’s lineup for one weekend only at the State Theatre.

Starting with the opening night documentary, Firestarter – The Story of Bangarra, the compelling story of the Page brothers, who took a newly born Australian dance company and turned it into a First Nations cultural powerhouse.

High Ground is a tense and powerful Australian outback western starring Simon Baker, Jacob Junior Nayinggul and Jack Thompson.

The triumphant documentary Girls Can’t Surf highlights the fiercely competitive band of women surfers from around the world who revolutionised the sport.

Plus, be among the first in Sydney to see two acclaimed international features: Sundance Grand Jury Prize winner Minari and the alcohol-soaked Danish film Another Round, starring the brilliant Mads Mikkelsen (The Hunt).

Book single tickets for $24 adult or $18.50 concession, or catch the entire weekend program with a subscription for $92.50.

All screenings will be COVID-safe with social distancing.
