My Cinema My Film Festival aims to bring audiences back to their local theatres at a time when cinemas are faced with reduced capacity and fewer international releases.

Scotty’s Cinemas is proud to present this exciting festival in Raymond Terrace, NSW.

Program highlights include: High Ground, a brand-new Australian drama set in Arnhem Land starring Simon Baker and Jack Thompson (Mystery Road: SFF 2013); Cannes Film Festival Un Certain Regard award winning comedy The Climb. As well as Oscar nominated director Agnieszka Holland’s critically acclaimed drama Charlatan; and Sydney Film Festival 2020 Documentary Australia Foundation Award winner Descent, a strikingly beautiful documentary focusing on free diver Kiki Bosch.

Sydney Film Festival CEO Leigh Small said, “Sydney Film Festival and the Travelling Film Festival are proud to partner with ICA to bring an expertly curated selection of films to metropolitan and regional cinemas across Australia.

“My Cinema My Film Festival, gives independent operators a chance to present a bespoke festival-worthy program of world-class and top Australian cinema to screen to their local audiences.

“This is one step we can take together to help bring audiences back to the cinemas responsibly, with outstanding films they are unlikely to see anywhere on streaming platforms,” she said.

Scott Seddon, of Scotty’s Cinemas and President of Independent Cinemas Australia, an organisation representing independent cinema operators throughout the country said, “My Cinema My Film Festival, presented in collaboration with Sydney Film Festival and the Travelling Film Festival, is a fantastic opportunity for ICA member cinemas and the communities they serve to see the very best quality of films on the big screens of cinemas throughout Australia’s cities and vast regional areas.

“This will give this particular segment of patrons the reason they have been looking for to get out off the couch and into their COVID-safe cinemas,” he said.
