Sam Neill and George Miller are on board to judge this year's Tropfest. 

Jasper Jones director Rachel Perkins and Aussie producer Bruna Papandrea (Big Little Lies, Gone Girl) will also front the panel, alongside head of jury Rose Byrne.

"It is an enormous honour to add these esteemed filmmakers to the Tropfest Jury in our 25th year,” said founder and chair John Polson.

“We're excited for our judges and audiences alike to experience the finalist films, produced by these young and brilliant minds.

"At a time when gender inequality is a major concern in the film industry at home and abroad, I'm also extremely proud that half of our finalists are women this year.”  

All of the selected film have been inspired by this year's signature item: 'pineapple'.

Tropfest will be held February 11 at Parramatta Park. It will screen nationally on Eleven and globally via Red Bull TV.
