We are excited to introduce the film program for 2022, which will be showcased during TEDxSydney 2022 on 5 August at Sydney Town Hall.
The TEDxSydney 2022 Film Program inspired filmmakers across Australia to tackle the theme, IMPRINT.

From emerging talent to an accomplished feature director, they all bring to the TEDxSydney stage and screen, insightful, beautiful and surprising viewpoints on our 2022 theme of IMPRINT.” – Peter Cramer, TEDxSydney Film Curator
