My Cinema My Film Festival - Mildura


MY CINEMA MY FILM FESTIVAL screening at Wallis Mildura

Sydney Film Festival’s Travelling Film Festival (TFF) has partnered with Independent Cinemas Australia (ICA) and world-wide content delivery service Qube Wire to present My Cinema My Film Festival, with a metro curated program screening at our cinema. The initiative is supported by Screen Australia.

My Cinema My Film Festival aims to bring audiences back to the cinema at a time when we are faced with reduced capacity and fewer international releases. A chance to present curated international film festival to our local metro audience.

The Festival presents an eclectic program, showcasing independent and arthouse features from Australia and overseas, and a selection of Australian short films, as well as unique interview footage connecting film creatives to the Australian film-going community.

Sydney Film Festival CEO Leigh Small said, “Sydney Film Festival and the Travelling Film Festival are proud to partner with ICA to bring an expertly curated selection of films to cinemas across Australia.

“My Cinema My Film Festival, gives independent operators a chance to present a bespoke festival-worthy program of world-class and top Australian cinema to screen to their local audiences.

“Australian cinemas everywhere have been struggling under the weight of COVID-19 factors such as lockdowns, reduced audience capacities, or access to films due to delayed and limited theatrical film releases globally.

“This is one step we can take together to help bring audiences back to the cinemas responsibly, with outstanding films they are unlikely to see anywhere on streaming platforms,” she said.
