Sydney Film Festival 2012

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

First Position
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.
Monday 11th June 6pm Event Cinemas George Street

Without our children at the festival we will be checking out:
Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom
