We took to the black carpet in Sydney’s Centennial Park on Valentine’s Day to interview the latest crop of Tropfest finalists. We spoke to a variety of talent, directors, actors and select members from the 2016 judging panel.
Through sunshine, thunder, lightning and rain record crowds attended, in support of local talent. Unique stories were presented, and overall, a sense of unity and accomplishment filled the air as crowds cheered in appreciation for the renewal and revitalised showcase. Something that is a defining event in the Australian arts landscape.
