The Sydney Underground Film Festival has carved out a much-needed space for the independent film community in Sydney. Through a focus on the subversive, the provocative and avant-garde, SUFF has become an important annual event for both local and nationwide audiences and filmmakers from here and overseas.
Bringing important films, often from outside the mainstream, to local audiences and furthermore, providing local creative types with extensive networking and practical skill-building opportunities, and the platform from which their work can be seen.
The 9th festival is on from Thursday 17th – Sunday 20th September at The Factory Theatre in Marrickville. Set over 4 days, the 50+ sessions will be presented across 5 cinemas. In 2015, the inaugural 2-day master class and talks program will be hosted during the festival on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th September. This is a wonderful opportunity for the community to take advantage of a series of master classes and talks with successful independent filmmakers and producers – in areas such as directing, scriptwriting, special effects and distribution.
The Sydney Underground Film Festival screens 100+ films each year & has attracted over 25,000 people since its inception in 2007.
