Tropfest is the world’s largest short film festival. It started more than 20 years ago in a small cafe in Sydney, to a very small but passionate audience.
The Australian festival today commands a live audience of 150,000 viewers in a single night, and receives an average of 700 entries annually.
Internationally, the festival has been supported and judged by distinguished industry professionals like George Miller, Naomi Watts, Elijah Wood, Toni Collette, Salma Hayek, Russell Crowe, Nicole Kidman, Baz Luhrmann, Ewan McGregor, Darren Aronofsky, Will Smith, Bryan Singer and many others.
