The Setting Sun Film Festival (SSFF) returns for its eighth edition from 18-26 June. This year, the festival will screen at the Sun Theatre and online in a nine-day hybrid festival that aims to deliver filmmaker forums, and a short film program that includes animations, documentaries, comedies, drama and more.

Founded in 2013, the festival is now a popular Melbourne film event with an international reputation. It delivers an extensive short film program and premieres a Victorian made feature film every year and over a third of the festival’s filmmakers are women.

The introduction of the Cultural Diversity Award in 2014 has attracted many films that reflect the richness of Australia’s communities. It has provided mainstream exposure to films highlighting diversity regarding sexuality, gender identity, disability, age, race, ethnicity, and religion. The festival also screens a large youth program, sponsored by Victoria University.
