Entries are open for the 2023 Sydney Film Festival that presents a diverse slate of features, documentaries and short films from Australia and around the world.

Among them is the Screenability program with entries of any length created around disability which is open to Australian and international productions.

Founded in 2017, and produced in partnership with Create NSW, the Screenability program showcases the emerging talent of international and Australian filmmakers with disability. This strand of the festival program is only open to filmmakers with disability and their films (fiction and non-fiction) that can be of any length, or on any topic, but must be New South Wales/State premieres (films over 40 minutes) or Sydney premieres (films under 40 minutes).

To be eligible for submission to this category, either the director, screenwriter or producer of the film must identify as living with disability.

“We are looking for films that are audacious, cutting-edge and courageous,” festival director Nashen Moodley said.

Closing date for submissions for one of the world’s longest-running festivals is February 24, 2023.

All entrants are advised to review the submission requirements closely. A small fee applies.
