Sydney Tropfest 2013 - 3 screens, 16 short films & 150,000 Aussies

December 10, 2013

Beers and ciders in the sun while watching 16 short film screenings at Sydney's Centennial Park? Well...if you insist. Tropfest 2013 is an annual Australian short film festival that sees over 100,000 Aussies gather on the grass of Centennial park armed with picnic rugs and six packs. 

The aim is to get there around mid afternoon; hang out with friends, enjoy live music, food, drinks and watch the 3 giant screens in the middle of the park in anticipation until the 16 finalist short films are screened for all our judging eyes. The winner is then announced and the first prize winner takes out $10,000 cash, a car and a Nikon camera.

The winning film 'Bamboozled' has caused some controversy because of its 'anti-gay' angle but we personally think it was a good laugh and a fun concept, maybe not necessarily first place worthy but we were definitely entertained. 

Side note, it was hard not to miss the abundance of ugly camera bags out there, shame...
