Tonight marks the opening night of the 2011 Sydney Film Festival, with Joe Wright's Hanna premiering at the beautiful State Theatre (above) at 7.30pm. I will not be attending Opening Night, instead seeing The Troll Hunter at Event Cinemas, George Street.

I'll outline the schedule of films (after the jump) I will be seeing over the course of the SFF and the reviews to expect on the days (or potentially weeks) following. I have a stretch there where I am seeing three films on Monday afternoon/night, working all day Tuesday, and then seeing two more Tuesday evening. Wish me luck during that stretch, people.

  1. That is one spruce theatre and that is one sweet lookin' schedule. Especially intrigued to hear what you think of SENNA and PROJECT NIM. Good luck mate - Don't forget to schedule yourself time to rest!

  2. It's certainly a great venue. I'm looking forward to all of the films, but Senna and Project Nim are two I am especially anticipating. A few of these days will be tough (esp. Sat, Mon and Tues) but I will persevere. Thanks for the encouragement, Hatter. This is going to be an intensely awesome 11 days.
