Australia agenda: world’s first 360-degree 3D experience at Sydney Film Festival
Sunday 05 June 2011
A hand-picked selection of world premieres, short films, documentaries and the world’s first 360-degree 3D AI cinematic installation will spice up the 58th edition of the Sydney Film Festival, Australia’s second largest film festival.
58th Sydney Film Festival
Various venues in Sydney
On the heels of Cannes, Australia’s second biggest film festival marks its 58th year with more than 160 films from 42 countries. The Sydney Film Festival (SFF for short) showcases a hand-picked selection of short films, Australian films, documentaries and archive titles - many of which are world premieres. While the Melbourne International Film Festival is regarded as the most significant film event in Australia, the Sydney Film Festival is one of the longest-running film festivals in the world. In 2011 SFF will again host the Travelling Film Festival, taking mini-film festivals to 15 venues across regional NSW, the Northern Territory and rural Queensland.
