Sydney Film Festival - June 4th to 15th, 2014

Bonjour/Hi !

Je vous annonce qu'il y aura deux films Canadiens venant du Québec qui seront présentés au Sydney Film Festival. Le festival commence le 4 juin et se termine le 15 juin.

I am pleased to announce that two Canadian films from Quebec will be presented at the Sydney Film Festival. The Festival starts on June 4th until June 15th.

The Sydney Film Festival have just released a selection of their teaser films, including two French/Canadian films, GABRIELLE and TOM AT THE FARM. Please read the synopses below.


In this uplifting tale from the producers of SFF 2012 Audience Award winner Monsieur Lazhar, a musically gifted young woman with intellectual disability falls in love, only to discover her family has concerns. Can she handle an adult sexual relationship? Gabrielle won the Canadian Screen Award for Best Film, and radiant newcomer Gabrielle Marion-Rivard (in a semi-autobiographical role) won Best Actress.

Tom at the Farm

Xavier Dolan, the young Canadian who won the 2010 Sydney Film Prize at the age of 21 for Heartbeats, directed and stars in this tense and complex Hitchcockian psychological thriller. A young man attends the funeral of his gay lover in rural Quebec, only to find himself trapped in a dangerous dance of lust and sadistic impulses with the deceased's brother.

The full SFF program will be released May 7th and single tickets can be bought then. At present, Flexipass tickets are on sale! Flexipasses offer big savings on single-ticket prices, and you can share them with friends and family. For all the info please visit http://www.sff.org.au/public/films/program/sff-2014-preview/
