    The Australian city of Sydney hosts one of the world's longest-running film festivals, which wraps up on Sunday.

    But the Sydney Film Festival does not have the clout of Cannes or the status of Sundance.

    In order to attract larger crowds, this year the festival became more flexible by screening films from almost 60 different countries.

    Al Jazeera's Andrew Thomas reports from Sydney.
