Tropfest has revealed the national venues for this year's festival.
The main event will be held at Sydney’s Centennial Parklands, while the national screening event sites will take place at Moonlight Cinema venues across the country on December 6.
They will include Melbourne’s Royal Botanic Gardens Central Lawn, Perth’s Kings Park and Botanic Garden, and Adelaide’s Plane Tree Drive.
Other live, outdoor screenings of Tropfest will take place at Perth Midlands at the Cale Street Outdoor Area, at the Town Hall in Gundaroo NSW, and Skyline Drive In Blacktown, with more venues to be announced in the coming weeks.
Tropfest will also continue its partnership with Moonlight Cinema and hotel QT Sydney for the second year.
Tropfest managing director, Michael Laverty, said Tropfest was extremely proud to be a game chaning platform for Australian filmmakers.
“Over our 23 years, we’ve made it our mission to connect talented filmmakers with the largest possible audiences”.
“Our continued partnership with Moonlight Cinema means that more Australian’s get to experience a great night out, for free, where they can laugh, cry and ultimately experience inspiring and creative films together; as well as witness firsthand the forging of new filmmaking careers.”
“Finalist filmmakers have their work viewed by hundreds of thousands of people live across the country, which is an opportunity not possible in any other film competition,” he said.
