19th Annual Movie Extra Tropfest
Holiday makers at our elegant Surfers Paradise beachfront accommodation can look forward to another exciting and colourful year in short films as the Gold Coast and Pacific Plaza Holiday Apartments welcomes everyone to participate on the 19th Annual Movie Extra Tropfest.
Taking place on the 20 February 2011, the Circle at Cavill Big Screen in Surfers Paradise and will provide a free venue for the much awaited screening of the “world’s largest short film fest.”
The Movie Extra Tropfest is the most well regarded short film festival in Australia that provides a great platform for up and coming filmmakers. For almost a two decades, the Tropfest has played an important role in the development of the local film industry with their programs as well as their ever expanding number of audiences that support in the creation of well crafted short films. The Toprfest progarms include Trop Jr. which is a short filmmaking festival and competition for kids under 15; TFP which provides an opportunity for past Tropfest finalists to create their very first feature or TV series; Max Tropscore, a competition for film scoring and synching; as well as their TropShorts film distribution.
Guests at our Gold Coast family accommodation will have the chance to chance to catch this year’s Tropfest activities which will begin at 2pm with the screening of Trop Junior. There will also be live entertainments that will precede the live broadcast from Sydney which will start at 4pm and the main event will be at 6pm. The award ceremony will take stage at around 9pm. Be on the look out for this year’s Tropfest Signature Item which is a “key”. Each featured short film in Tropfest is made genuinely for the purpose of the festival and with this reason the organizers provide Tropfest Signature Item (TSI) which changes every year. Holiday makers at our elegant yet cheap accommodation in Surfers Paradise can enjoy the open air cinema while lounging on a comfy bean bags available at the venue. You can also buy some snacks and foods at the nearby restaurants and cafes in Cavill Avenue.
