About

We look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful venue Golden Age at the heritage-listed Paramount Pictures Building in Surrey Hills, Sydney.

Sydney Short Film Festival is an independent film festival that focuses on putting the spotlight on short films – a category that unfortunately doesn’t get the mainstream attention it deserves. We attract in particular classical and cult movies that goes well with our art deco cinema from the 1940s. Although we are an Australian film festival, we do accept submissions from around the world and encourage you to take the trip down-under to celebrate with us your film and contribution.
 
Our judging panel consists of experienced Australian filmmakers who themselves have gone through the same path of creating and maintaining a film production.
 
Our festival will take place on January 28th 2019 and will be followed by an Awards Ceremony and after-party.
 
Winners will receive custom-made awards including trophies, gift certificates and funding for upcoming film projects.
 
We will accept films in the following categories:
Best Short Film
Best Short Drama
Best Short Comedy
Best Short Action
Best Short Documentary
Best Music Score
Best Music Video
Best Director Best Producer

We accept submissions exclusively through Filmfreeway.com
 
If you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact us and we will respond within 24 hours on business days.
