The new director of the Sydney Film Festival says this year's event features a vast array of films from both first-time filmmakers and cinematic masters.

Over 150 films will be shown during the 12 day festival in June.

It boasts world premieres including Australian comedy Not Suitable for Children, starring Ryan Kwanten, and the Disney Pixar's film Brave, with comedian Billy Connolly.

This year's festival is hoping to showcase Indigenous films as part of a curatorial partnership with Blackfella films.

It will show the world premiere of Mabo, directed by Rachel Perkins. The film marks the 20th anniversary of the landmark court decision.

New festival director Nashen Moodley says he is excited about the focus on Indigenous cinema.

"It makes perfect sense. A new audience," he said.

The official competition will for the first time include films from India, Korea and Senegal together with local films vying for the $60,000 prize.

Moodley says he did not want to tamper too much with the traditions of the festival.

"I think as a new director you bring you're own particular taste but in terms of the geographical diversity of the festival I really wanted to keep that going and create a program where there'd be something for everyone and I think we've managed that," he said.

"It's a program you can really dip into the hooks for people with all types of taste and that's what I'm very excited about."

Other special presentations include a Bernardo Bertolucci retrospective and a selection of horror and zombie movies.

The festival runs for 12 days from June 6.
