The 15th Annual Sydney Underground Film Festival will be streamed on-demand to Australia and the world from Thursday 9th until Sunday 26th September 2021 online.

The festival programs unique, eye-opening and entertaining independent films that transgress the status quo and challenge the conservative conventions of filmmaking. The festival is devoted to renewing local interest in independent and experimental film as part of an international underground film culture and aims to change an ingrained culture of cinematic complacency and revitalise enthusiasm for cinema.


The Sydney Underground Film Festival is dedicated to nurturing an alternative film culture through the promotion of independent and experimental films. The festival seeks to support filmmakers (especially those who operate outside established film industry infrastructures) by providing a platform for exhibition, exposure and critical discussion.
