Sydney Film Festival unveils first batch of films for 2013

The first batch of titles headed to the 2013 Sydney Film Festival have been unveiled on the SFF’s official website.


A couple of the pictures were expected by arthouse aficionados to make the cut, including Park Chan-wook’s English-language debut Stoker (which was delayed from its original March release date to instead debut at the fest), and Noah Baumbach’s latest, Frances Ha.

That doesn’t make their inclusion any less exciting.

They’ll join SFF mainstay Takeshi Kitano’s newie Outrage Beyond, Michael Winterbottom and Steve Coogan’s latest collaboration The Look of Love, Sarah Polley’s autobiographical Stories We Tell, and Russell Crowe-narrated Aussie doco Red Obsession.

Also found in this early announcement is Prince Avalanche, in which David Gordon Green returns to his indie roots with Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch, as well as the Spanish Snow White flick Blancanieves, not to mention Alfred Hitchcock’s classic Rear Window.

Head to the Sydney Film Festival site for the rest of the list.

The festival takes place June 5-13. The full program will be announced between then and now.
