THE TSI

Not sure what the TSI is? Here's what you need to know.

 

 

Tropfest is about encouraging production of film, not just exhibition, so it's a requirement of entry that your film is made specifically for the Festival. 

The TSI (or Tropfest Signature Item) is a way for us to know that your film has been made for the Festival.

The TSI for Tropfest Australia 2017 is "PINEAPPLE". You can include the TSI in your film in any way you like and any interpretation of “PINEAPPLE” is accepted. You can create a whole story idea around the TSI, or you can choose to have in the script or even in the background of a shot somewhere. Be creative!
