Film Lovers Head West to Tropfest

Where Sydney - - Hot In The City -

Founded in 1993 by film di­rec­tor John Pol­son, the an­nual Tropfest short film fes­ti­val now at­tracts a huge na­tional event au­di­ence an­nu­ally. This is a unique com­pe­ti­tion as ev­ery film must be made specif­i­cally for Tropfest and must in­clude the 2018 Tropfest Sig­na­ture Item, “ROSE”. Troptalks pre­sented by Western Syd­ney Univer­sity (13–16 Fe­bru­ary) re­turn to their new home at the Univer­sity’s Par­ra­matta City and Syd­ney City cam­puses. Then watch as the 16 fi­nal­ists’ films are shown on the big screen on 17 Fe­bru­ary in beau­ti­ful Par­ra­matta Park, where fans can pick their patch with VIP seat­ing to skip the crowds. This year Academy Award win­ner Su­san Saran­don will head up the Tropfest jury.

17 Fe­bru­ary, films start screen­ing at dusk, free event (paid VIP seat­ing avail­able via Tick­etek), Par­ra­matta Park, Par­ra­matta.
