Sydney designated as "City of Film"

Dynamic film industry and education

Sydney designated as "City of Film" of UNESCO's Creative Cities Network.

Sydney joins Bradford as the second City of Film in the Network. Its film industry demonstrates a dynamic balance between the different film-related sectors, public and private, offering openness to the cinema of all cultures which provides the lesser known ones a solid platform to exhibit their talents and potential. The big film festivals like the Sydney film festival, World of Women Film Festival and Tropfest add a glamorous and yet meaningful tinge to Sydney's film culture at the same time promoting young professionals to join this industry. Film education to the aspirants at a very young age, availability of number of studios and commercial back-up for film promotion highlight Sydney's worth as UNESCO City of Film and also gives an outlook as on what it can offer to the Network.
