ABOUT SYDNEY FILM FESTIVAL
Sydney Film Festival is a major event on the New South Wales cultural calendar and is one of the world's longest-running film festivals. Sydney Film Festival is supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW, the Federal Government through Screen Australia and the City of Sydney.
Taking a stand for gender diversity in film, EFP (European Film Promotion) successfully launched EUROPE! VOICES OF WOMEN IN FILM at the Sydney Film Festival (SFF) in 2016. In close cooperation with SFF, the programme recognises new works by some of Europe's most exciting women directors and presents them in a dedicated section of the festival. Suggested by the respective EFP member organisations and selected by festival director Nashen Moodley, the programme highlights the virtuosity and strength of innovative European cinema by women film artists and features their work to Sydney's enthusiastic audience, press and Australia's welcoming and promising market.
