Back for its seventh year, the Sydney Film Festival brings global rhythms, a silent dinner part and half a dozen discos to its city of origin. The program features 300 productions across 50 venues, including a new pop-up cultural precinct on Parramatta Road called "Off Broadway". The festival features music, comedy, theatre, cabaret and activities for kids, too.
