16 films over 10 days

The Armenian Film Festival Sydney showcases the story of the Armenian people, from the minds of creative filmmakers from around the world.

All films will be screening at Event Cinemas, Top Ryde with a Launch Party after the film on Saturday, 19 August, starting at 7pm.

Armenians have a long history of filmmaking, with iconic filmmakers such as Sergei Parajanov and Rouben Mamoulian taking centre stage in the last century. Contemporary filmmakers now provide a wide choice for film lovers.

The Armenian Film Festival Sydney was established in 2016, and now in its second edition has grown to over 13 films, including feature films, documentaries, animations and short films, in a broad range of genre.

The purpose of the Festival is to showcase the rich Armenian culture, resilience, history, and language through the medium of film, providing a platform for the talent, creativity and storytelling of Armenian and non-Armenian filmmakers from the international film industry. All films showcased at the Festival are hand-picked by the Committee members for this purpose.

In doing so, the festival aims to entertain and inspire our audiences, challenge perspectives and open dialogue about the many issues facing Armenians today.
