The flagship program of Sydney Film Festival is the Official Competition, which was established in 2008 and celebrates ‘courageous, audacious and cutting-edge’ cinema. The Sydney Film Prize and $60,000 cash is awarded by a jury of five professionals to the winner among the 12 titles selected for the Official Competition. The Official Competition is endorsed by Federation Internationale des Associations de Producteurs de Films.

Film buffs who zoom around from sold out screening to sold out talk, a smile on their face, never worried they'll miss a film, go to the wrong venue or get left out in the rain? They have one thing you don't: this app in their pocket. Makes the experience 100% easier, ensuring your focus is on the films, not on trying to find that crumpled ticket printout at the bottom of your bag under the pouring rain 10 minutes after the film has begun.

Annoyingly confusing, not synching


Fairly disappointed that the app is not showing the tickets I bought through the web site, but it seems to confusingly show all my liked movies mingled with only sone of my purchased tickets, but not all of them. I would have missed one of my movies today if I hadn’t checked my actual printed tickets. No use having it at all if it confuses rather than assists. It also keeps telling me it need to update, but then won’t actually update and then goes into a loop telling me it needs to update... epic fail again SFF ticketing...

No longer supports adding tickets to Apple Wallet


Previous versions of this app allowed adding tickets to Apple Wallet, where it can be easily brought up to be scanned, or shared with those you're seeing films with.

That feature has been inexplicably removed - now you have to open the app, and navigate to the correct tickets to bring them up, and it's no longer possible to send tickets to others without screenshotting the app.
