Where is it? The Domain, Sydney

Held in February, Tropfest is the perfect excuse to pack a picnic and sprawl out on the grass at The Domain, the park in the heart of Sydney. The long-running short-film festival – 2012 will be its 20th year – screens entries that are a maximum of seven minutes long and that have been filmed specially for the competition: they each have to feature the Tropfest Signature Item (it’s a light bulb for 2012). Although the festival is held in Sydney, it’s broadcast via satellite to every other capital except Darwin (sorry, Darwin) plus Surfers Paradise.
