SHORT flim lovers are rejoicing with the news Tropfest is back!
There was national outcry when the iconic event was cancelled last month, but a saviour has appeared in the form of CGU Insurance.
More than 1.6 million people have attended a Tropfest event since it was established in 1993 by Founder and Festival Director, John Polson who said the outpouring of support has been overwhelming.
“It’s incredibly encouraging to see that the Australian public and corporate community really want to see Tropfest return,” Mr Polson said.
“As a free, outdoor event, Tropfest makes short film accessible to all. There’s nothing else quite like it and I think that’s what people love,” he continued.
The Tropfest finalist films will premiere live in Sydney’s Centennial Parklands on Valentine’s Day, Sunday February 14, and will also be broadcast free-to-air from 9pm on SBS 2.
