Since its inception in 1954, the Sydney Film Festival (SFF), recognised by the Federation Internationale des Associations de Producteurs de Films (FIAPF), has increased in size and reputation to become a leading international film festival in Australia. The festival takes place each June at venues across Sydney. The SFF program celebrates the best of world cinema, screening features, documentaries, short films, retrospectives and a series of industry and public talks. In 2019, just under 270 productions from over 60 countries were selected for the festival, attracting an audience of over 180,000.

The festival presents awards as follows:
Official Competition ($60,000) for 'cutting-edge, audacious and innovative' feature films; Documentary Australia Foundation Award for Best Australian Documentary ($10,000); Dendy Awards for Australian Short Films for Best Australian Fiction ($7,000) and Rouben Mamoulian Award for Best Australian Director ($7,000); and Yoram Gross Animation Award for Best Australian Animation ($5,000).
