Home' Sydney Film Festival Program : Program 2014 Contents HOW TO FESTIVAL
Here's how to make the most of your Sydney Film Festival experience
Under Australian Classification regulations, no one under 18 (including babies) is admitted to
unclassified SFF screenings. Children under 18 are only admitted to classified films with a parent
or guardian. Please check our website for up-to-date information on session classifications. Proof
of age must be available on request.
PLEASE ARRIVE ON TIME
Unlike other movie screenings, SFF sessions actually start at advertised times. Latecomers may
not be admitted once the session has started -- and if a short film is screening before the feature,
latecomers will be asked to wait until it has finished before taking their seats.
BE AWARE OF CHANGES
We make every effort to keep to our schedule; however, our programs are subject to change.
Whenever possible, changes are announced at venues, at sff.org.au and on SFF's Facebook and
KNOW WHERE YOU'RE SITTING
Please note whether your ticket is for reserved seating (State Theatre). Other venues do not have
allocated seating. Please respect the 'Reserved Seating' signs if you see them.
USE THE APP
Whenever possible, use the SFF 2014 App -- it really does make festival life easier! We especially
urge you to use the ticketing barcodes in your app instead of the PDF tickets that are mailed to you.
(See opposite page for more information.)
SCREENING SOLD OUT? DON'T GIVE UP JUST YET
Check sff.org.au as extra tickets are often released nearer the screening date -- or visit the Box
