Sydney Film Festival 2011 | 8-19 June 2011

This morning the Sydney Film Festival announced its full line up for the 2011 festival. I love giving my children the opportunity to see films that lets them see the world through other childrens eyes. A highlight in the family program is the Australian Premiere Africa United. The film follows three Rwandan kids and their journey to the World Cup with dreams of auditioning for the 2010 opening.

Also screening in the family program children can experience Sammy's adventures - The secret passage and Danish film The Great Bear ( English version). The trailer for The Great Bear looks wonderful. You can find more about The Great Bear at the Danish Film Institute.

Jack Black and Lucy Liu will be walking the red carpet for the Australian premiere of Kung Fu Panda 2 3D on Monday 13th June.

There are a selection of wonderful films within the full program but most of these are classified 18+ and due to the OFLC policy under 18's will not be permitted into the 18+ classified screenings.
