TROPFEST 2018: We are thrilled to be back at Parramatta

JOHN POLSON
WE’RE thrilled to bring Tropfest back to Parramatta for another year.
 
As one of Sydney’s most ethnically vibrant areas, Parramatta makes a fitting new home, perfectly aligning with Tropfest’s call for entries to showcase greater cultural diversity on our screens.
 
In 2017, Tropfest achieved gender equality for the first time, with female filmmakers making up half of the finalists. This year, Tropfest is striving to further increase inclusivity, encouraging submissions that showcase Australia’s rich multicultural identity.
 
It goes without saying; Tropfest would not exist, and could not continue to grow bigger and better every year, without the loyal support of our communities, and our partners - including our Foundation Partner, CGU. 
 
Parramatta’s thriving local community, from residents to businesses both big and small, were instrumental in bringing everything together for this unique event in 2017.
 
Back for its biggest year yet, TropTalks will now run over four massive days across Western Sydney University’s Parramatta and City campuses as part of a huge week-long extravaganza of filmmaker events, including the Tropfest Craft Awards and our Opening Party. 
 
Trop Jr (for 15-year olds and under) is back on February 17, having settled into Events Cinemas at Parramatta Westfield. 
 
We’ve also brought back Pick Your Patch, allowing fans to secure unbeatable views of the action, with a beach chair to relax into and exclusive food and drink options. And look out for Tropfest Food Village on event day in gorgeous Parramatta Park!
 
So, mark your diaries for February 13 – 17, grab your mates, and join us for another great year of 16 incredibly creative films, held together with a rose, Tropfest’s Signature Item for 2018.
 
We look forward to seeing you there! Visit: www.tropfest.org.au
