Tropfest Penang 2012 – Went to Tropfest – The World’s Largest Short Film Festival which was also the last event of the month-long George Town Festival 2012. It’s my first time checking out a ‘film festival’ and also watching film at the outdoor, so close the nature. It was held at the Quarry Park of Penang’s Botanical Garden. Seating were on the nature grass floor.
It’s a good experience, together with few hundreds people watching the professional short film from around the world. I thought it’s a projector screen but instead it was a very huge LED screen.
Tropfest was actually originated from Australia, where filmmaker showcases shortfilm in a small gathering in a cafe named Tropicana Cafe, sooner it’d became a annual festival for short filmmaker around the world, becoming Tropfest of today. If you’ve missed it nevermind, you can check it out again next year at this month.
