TROPFEST: TODAY SYDNEY, TOMORROW THE WORLD

The 16 finalists, from 580 entries, in this year's Tropfest, includes the first ever international entry - Eddie Edward's short film, Beep. "This year the finalists show a great diversity in tone and style - not to mention usage of the Tropfest Signature Item (horn)," says Festival Director John Polson.

Of the 16, eight are from NSW, one from SA and three each from Queensland and Victoria. Tropfest is held in Sydney's Domain and various cafes around Sydney and Australia, on Sunday, February 25, and WEBCAST live by Telstra in association with Urban Cinefile.

The judges at this year’s event are: Toni Collette, Greta Scacchi, Rachel Ward, David Wenham, and last year’s Tropfest winners Robin Feiner and Jesse Gibson.
