KEY EVENTS

The Screen Festival - proudly sponsored by Telstra - is your opportunity to see exclusive premieres and countless screenings of a huge variety of content – from traditional features to short-form and episodic work. Multiple venues across the SXSW Sydney event precinct – like the ICC’s Darling Theatre and Palace Central Cinemas – will be showing traditional screen ventures alongside ground-breaking new technologies. There’ll be dedicated showcases for innovative technologies like XR, VR and mixed reality, as well as a First Nations Screen Festival curated by Pauline Clague, founder of Winda Film Festival.

THE SXSW SYDNEY SCREEN FESTIVAL IS ACCESSIBLE TO BADGE HOLDERS AND THOSE WITH A SCREEN FESTIVAL WRISTBAND.

*Final screen selections are subject to change. SXSW Sydney cannot guarantee that all screen projects listed will ultimately be shown at SXSW Sydney 2023.
