Trop Talks

TropTalks is our ideas and education program, jointly presented with Western Sydney University, giving filmmakers and those with an interest in screen an opportunity to discuss and debate key topics that impact the industry. Panels will feature Tropfest’s best known talent, alumni and friends to capture a broad audience and encourage debate with perspective.

Each TropTalk has a subsidy for all students interested in the program (from both Western Sydney University and all other tertiary institutions.)

2018 TropTalks will be announced soon, stay tuned!
