Lift-Off arrives to promote independent film-making talent from Australia and beyond, as a part of their ten-city-wide global network of independent filmmakers.

Attendees can expect to be treated to screenings packed with challenging features, perspective-shifting documentaries, and award-winning short films. The audience plays an integral role; their responses are collected via feedback cards, which are given to the filmmakers as part of the screening process that aims to develop and nurture the filmmakers’ process.

The festival will culminate with a Local Filmmaker Showcase and Networking Party on Wednesday 22nd November, where attendees can celebrate and mingle with the best of Australian indie film talent, as well as international Lift-Off filmmakers who will be in attendance.

The Line-Up:
These are eclectic stories, sometimes heartwarming sometimes thought provoking, all with a common theme—the filmmakers’ passion to convey them to you, the audience.

Los Angeles Lift-Off winner Right Between Your Ears will screen on Tuesday 21st November. This philosophical feature explores the nature of belief, certainty, and truth through the stories of a group of people who believe they know the date of the end of the world.

Our programme in Sydney also includes a Quartet of Featurettes, to showcase the best of this underappreciated medium. These include films from Saudi Arabia to South Africa, exploring themes from violent extremism to clairvoyance, and everything in between.

The best of Australian indie film will be displayed not only in our Local Filmmakers Showcase, which includes nine Australian shorts, but also in Australian feature Zelos, which will screen prior to the showcase. This thought-provoking feature follows Bernard, a man whose meticulous life is thrown into disarray by his girlfriend’s infidelity.

The festival includes a short film programme, a quartet of featurettes, and four features, culminating with a local filmmakers showcase and networking party on November 22nd.
