The 9th Sydney Underground Film Festival


The 9th annual Sydney Underground Film Festival (SUFF) starts on September 17, aka this Thursday! Over four days, over 50 sessions will be presented across 5 cinemas set up within Marrickville’s Factory Theatre, which is hosting the SUFF until closing night on Sunday.

Over 100 films will be screened, as well as a 2-day filmmaking masterclass and workshop program on the last two days of the festival – your opportunity to learn from and speak with successful independent filmmakers and producers.

The SUFF opens with Argentinean director Gaspar Noé’s latest creation Love – a controversial and sexually explicit film that caused a stir at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. A ticket to Love in 3D on opening night gives you access to live performances, free pizza from Crust Dulwich Hill, a taste of wine from Kooks Winery and the film festival’s own beer Underground Ale – made in collaboration with Young Henrys Brewery.

In addition to the new, the festival is showing some of the true cinematic cult classics. Russ Meyer’s proto-feminist sexploitation Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! turns 50 this year, and will be on the big screen in all its action-packed glory. Also showing this week is Harmony Korine (Spring Breakers) and Larry Clark’s 1995 Kids; the brutal tale of Telly, a HIV positive New York youth with a penchant for deflowering virgins.

Each film is strictly adults only, with a few M15+ exceptions, which you can find on the official SUFF website, as well as session times and ticket prices.
