Festival Overview

Since 1993 Tropfest’s purpose has been simple: to create platforms for filmmakers to generate new content & share their stories. Each year the Festival delivers a raft of programs that encourage emerging talent to participate in the film industry and has helped launch some of Australia’s most notable film and TV careers. Events include Tropfest, Trop Jr, TropTalks and more, which form part of our multiday celebration of Australian film.

In 2018 we will celebrate our 26th anniversary, a significant milestone for our organisation, our network of filmmakers and our fans (known as Troppers). We will be celebrating in an exciting new home - the iconic and beautiful Parramatta Park.


Tropfest - open to filmmakers of all ages and abilities, cultures, gender and nationalities.
Trop Jr - for filmmakers aged 15 years and under on 17 February 2018
