The 12th edition of the Antenna Documentary Film Festival opens 9th-19th February in Sydney. Purchase tickets and festival passes at www.antennafestival.org
Antenna, Australia’s leading international non-fiction film festival, today unveils its full program for 2024. Featuring 52 of the most creative, thought-provoking documentaries from around the globe, over the course of 11 days, Antenna is set to turn Sydney into a doc-lovers paradise from 9–19 February 2024.
Opening the festival is the Australian Premiere of Tribeca Film Festival winner The Gullspång Miracle. The consistently surprising and funny film follows two pious sisters who buy an apartment after having witnessed a divine sign – only to realise that the seller looks identical to their other sister, who committed suicide some thirty years before. What starts as a story of family reunification, turns into a stranger-than-fiction mystery-drama.
In a new exciting partnership with the Sydney Opera House, Antenna will close the festival with the Australian Premiere of the highly anticipated Ryuichi Sakamoto | Opus, a concert film that captures Sakamoto’s last performance. A celebration of an artist’s life in the purest sense, this is the definitive swan song of the beloved maestro.
The 12th edition of the Antenna Documentary Film Festival opens Friday February 9th in Sydney and runs until Monday February 19th. For complete program information and to purchase tickets and festival passes, go to Home • Antenna Documentary Film Festival (antennafestival.org)
