Taken from its YouTube official page: Tropfest is the world's largest short film festival. It was founded at Sydney's Tropicana cafe in 1993 by Australian-born filmmaker, John Polson (Swimfan, Hide and Seek, Tenderness) and now has a single-night attendance of around 150,000 in Australia each February, as well as thousands more in New York and other cities at other times of the year. It is known for being the world's most exciting platform for up and coming film makers to gain international exposure.
Tropfest's mission is to continue to develop the most exciting forum in the world for audiences to come together and celebrate premium short films; and to continue to offer young filmmakers a bigger and better platform from which to launch their professional careers.
In this year's entry is a Singaporean produced short film called Big Feet which is on the verge of making it to the final 16 of Tropfest, happening in Sydney on 20th February. Big Feet is set in Singapore, and tells the bittersweet story of a young girl whose love of running is jeopardised by her ambitious father who pushes her to become a winner.
