The 2012 Sydney Film Festival swings into action this week running from the 6th June until the 17th June. With most films within the festival being unclassified, there is a limited selection this year for families/youths to choose from.
There are two great documentaries:
Because of the emotional content based around the bullying issue within American schools, this documentary is best for older teens. It's a story that needed to be told. We will review this film closer to the cinematic release date - 23rd August.
Sunday 10th June 930am - State Theatre
Tuesday 12th June 845pm - Event Cinemas, George Street
Another documentary that follows six young dancers as they chase their dream to win a highly competitive ballet competition.
Saturday 9th June 10am - Event Cinemas George Street
Sunday 17th June 11.45am - Event Cinemas George Street
The family draw card this year is the red carpet screening of Pixar Brave with Billy Connolly making a special appearance.
