A number of awards are presented during the Sydney Film Festival,
reflecting our commitment to quality cinema.
The FIAPF-accredited Official Competition will again be at the
heart of the 2014 festival, featuring 12 international titles,
selected for their 'courage and audacity'. A jury of two Australian
and three international industry figures will select one film to
receive the $60,000 Sydney Film Festival Prize.
The Sydney Film Festival rewards excellence in Australian
documentary filmmaking with the Australian Documentary Prize, now
in its fifth year.
The Sydney Film Festival also hosts the Dendy Awards for
Australian Short Films, celebrating the craft of short filmmaking
in Australia. The winners of the Live Action category and Yoram
Gross Animation Awards are Academy Award eligible.
Further details about this year's awards and the shortlisted films
will be available over the coming weeks so check back soon.
All of our stunning awards, from the blue beauty of the
Sydney Film Prize to the mesmeric swirl of the
Australian Documentary Prize and the Dendy
Awards, are generously created by Dinosaur
