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. SUFF endeavours to bring important films, often from outside the mainstream, to local audiences and furthermore, provide 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 exists because of a growing network of cinema goers, enthusiasts, volunteers and businesses who believe in what we are trying to achieve. Next year will be out 10th year and we have big plans! So thank you for considering supporting the Sydney Underground Film Festival.
