Sydney Film Festival 2022 - Not one to miss!
Updated: Jun 14, 2022
“Showcasing the greatest, strangest and most exciting works that cinema has to offer”, the 2022 Sydney Film Festival is running from the 8th-19th of June!
We are thrilled to have contributed to some of the wonderful films making their world debut at this event; ‘Everybody’s Oma’, ‘6 Festivals’, ‘Sissy’ and ‘We are Still Here’.
Award winning filmmaker Jason van Genderen was obsessed with making home videos about his mother during the pandemic, attracting over 100,000,000 views globally and turning her into an online celebrity. ‘Everybody’s Oma’ is a heartwarming documentary about Jason’s Oma, who has Vascular Dementia and Alzheimer's disease. “It will make you laugh and cry in the same breath - and it will provide hope about a stigmatised condition that badly needs it”.
‘Everybody’s Oma’ premieres to a sold out audience on the 11th of June.
Macario De Souza’s ‘6 Festivals’ is about three teen besties who throw themselves into a whirlwind of music festivals in an attempt to escape reality when one of them receives a devastating diagnosis. Featuring some of Australia’s hottest acts performing live, “6 Festivals is a moving love letter to young friendship and the life-altering power of live music”.
‘6 Festivals’ has screenings on the 10th, 12th and 17th of June.
‘We Are Still Here’ is an anthological First Nations film by 10 different directors from Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific, about endurance in the face of colonialism, racism and attempted erasure. The events of the film span 1000 years through eight protagonists, bringing together a range of genres to explore stories of kinship, loss, grief and resilience.
While ‘We Are Still Here’ premiered on the opening night of festival, audiences can still catch it on the 15th of June.
Directed by Hannah Barlow and Kane Senes, ‘Sissy’ is a clever Aussie horror about an influencer who seeks revenge against her childhood tormentor after bumping into her at a party in a remote bush property. “Playing it fast, funny and gory, writer-director duo Hannah Barlow and Kane Senes subvert slasher film conventions while dishing up a scathing satire of influencer culture and approval addiction”.
‘Sissy’ will play to a sold out audience on the 12th and 15th of June.
