Sydney World Film Festival

No upcoming dates
The 1940s were the peak of the Golden Era of Cinema. Iconic films like Casablanca, Citizen Kane, The Maltese Falcon and It’s a Wonderful Life filled theaters with larger than life characters created by legendary filmmakers. In Sydney, tucked inside the art deco Paramount House building that served as Paramount Pictures’ 1940 Oceania headquarters, was a basement screening room where executives got their first glimpse of many of these groundbreaking films. It is this venue so rich in cinematic history that will once again showcase cutting-edge films as The Sydney World Film Festival continues its quest to showcase work of cinema masters and rising talents. The Sydney World Film Festival was launched in 2015 as an online film festival. The online environment and the technology that made it possible was critical to the success of myriad filmmakers whose works would probably never have been screened at conventional festivals.
