Tropfest, is the world’s largest short film festival and one of Sydney Conference Venues favourite occasions. The summer calendar simply wouldn’t be complete without this free, public, outdoor event held on December 8, in the Brazilian Fields at Sydney’s beautiful Centennial Park.
Each year there is a different theme for the submitted films, known as the Tropfest Signature Item. The Tropfest Signature Item for 2013 is ‘CHANGE’. You will find the atmosphere electric and the film screening well attended by thousands of Sydneysiders. You are also likely to spot an Australian movie celebrity or two along to show their support.
So settle back on a picnic blanket in Sydney’s beautiful Centennial Park and prepare to be thoroughly entertained as we celebrate great stories and talented storytellers!
