Sydney Science Fiction Film Festival
Watch your way through ten sci-fi flicks and 41 shorts from 20 countries.
Some of Sydney's film festivals, such as the Sydney Film Festival and the Sydney Underground Film Festival, have run virtually this year. Others, like the Italian Film Festival and the upcoming Monster Fest, have stuck with in-person events. For movie buffs, that means you haven't been lacking in things to watch — and now a brand new film fest is about to hit town to treat you to a feast of sci-fi.
The Sydney Science Fiction Film Festival will run across three days, from Thursday, November 19–Saturday, November 21, screening ten features and 41 shorts from 20 countries. To get transported to another world — something we could all use this year — you'll need to head to the Actors Centre Australia in Leichhardt. And you can pick and choose the movies that interest you, or opt for a festival pass and watch your way through every session.
Topping the bill are the world premieres of new Australian films Monsters of Man and Strangeville, if you like pictures about military androids and alien abductions in an outback town. Or, you can check out weird and wonderful movies from around the globe, including Italian apocalyptic thriller Darkness, and French titles Fish Love and Anonymous Animals. The list goes on, and The Queen of the Lizards from Spain is on it — because, yes, there seems to be an animal theme in the fest's movie monikers.
