University research in focus for 2019 Sydney Film Festival

10 May 2019
In 2019, the inspiring research of our world-renowned researchers is the focus of the University of Sydney's partnership with the Sydney Film Festival.

From Wednesday 5 June to Sunday 16 June 2019, the 66th Sydney Film Festival will bring more than 250 of the world’s best new films to Sydney for 12 days and nights of screenings, talks and other special events.

The University of Sydney has supported the Festival since its inception and is proud to be its Education Partner in 2019.

“Just as the films screened during the Sydney Film Festival challenge audiences to think differently about the world around them, the research of our colleagues encourages others to see things differently, to embrace the unexpected and sometimes even to find counterintuitive solutions to issues of global importance,” said Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences Professor Annamarie Jagose.

In keeping with this ethos, scholars from diverse disciplines across the University have offered their research-backed insights into a selection of films being screened at the Festival:
