Running from Thursday, June 10th to Wednesday, June 16th for a special one-week engagement at Dendy Newtown, the 10th IFFA begins its Sydney season with the empowering rule-breaking portrait of an out-of-the-box Iranian woman TITI as its opening night film, which includes a complimentary glass of sparkling on arrival.

Now in its 10th year, Iranian Film Festival Australia is the only nationwide Australian Festival dedicated to Iranian Cinema. Our aim is to showcase a diverse range of the best and most interesting of current Iranian cinema - one of the world’s most exhilarating national cinemas - and through cinema to introduce Iranian culture to other Australians, providing a better cultural understanding.

The past year has been such a difficult year for the cinema industry and especially for festivals due to limitations caused by COVID-19 pandemic. But, we did not lose hope. We are thrilled that although with some delay we are finally able to present to you the 10th edition of IFFA. We look forward to seeing you in cinemas for some great films from Iran.

To view the full program of films and to purchase tickets, please visit the Dendy website.
