The SYDNEY WORLD FESTIVAL welcomes you. We are glad to welcome determined and courageous filmmakers from all over the world and are ready to support all those who are not afraid to embody their ideas in cinematography or screenwriting.
Everything is changeable in our world, and each new creative thought illuminates important topics of our society and the person as a whole, touching our hearts and opening up new feelings and emotions in us.
We are looking for those who are not afraid and dare to express their ideas, who are ready to remind all of us that creativity is limitless in this world. And when it seems that everything has already been said, filmed and written, we go to our goal and believe in our idea.
We believe and will never turn back!
