11th September 2019

The 2019 Sydney Underground Film Festival is on from Thursday 12th until Sunday 15th September at The Factory Theatre, Marrickville. 2019 marks the festival’s 13th edition. The festival programs unique, quality independent films that transgress the status quo and challenge the conservative conventions of filmmaking.

The festival is devoted to renewing local interest in independent and experimental film as part of an international underground film culture and aims to change an ingrained culture of cinematic complacency and revitalise an enthusiasm for cinema.
