Sydney Women’s International Film Festival (SWIFF) is an IMDb-registered event where the creativity and stories of women, non-binary and self-identified female filmmakers are celebrated and supported, all in the heart of one of the world’s most creative and iconic cities.

We aren’t seeing enough stories about women nor enough made by them. SWIFF is a not-for-profit organisation conceived to tackle this deficit with a new platform. Our volunteer team is dedicated to improving audience access to films that support gender equality while promoting the creativity of local and international non-binary and self-identifying female filmmakers alike.

Our festival includes programming of outstanding entries, post-screening Q&A with stand-out filmmakers, industry networking opportunities, and opening/closing social events. Our festivals includes both an online and physical event with award nominees screening at the physical event.

Previous SWIFF feature film selections have since been picked up for distribution with Apple TV, Netflix, Stan, Prime, SBS, ABC and more. Previous SWIFF short film selections have since been selected for the Oscar and Academy Awards ballots. Sydney Women’s International Film Festival showcases and celebrates female filmmaking excellence. Numerous SWIFF screenplay selections are now in production. Enter your film or screenplay entry today to be considered among the SWIFF2024 cohort.

We look forward to watching your entries and seeing you at the festival in late November!
