Summer nationwide means blockbuster films and quality cinema. Summer in NYC means enjoying festivals and outdoor green space. Behold: Tropfest! Two great tastes that taste great together. Billed as the “World’s Largest Short Film Festival”, the international Tropfest invades Bryant Park with its NYC debut this Saturday, June 23rd. There will be concerts and events throughout the day starting at 3:00 PM.
The film competition component starts around 8:00 PM. Submission guidelines insist that no film can be longer than seven minutes and there are no budget restrictions. The event is completely free, but with a Hugh Jackman hosting and celebrity judges including Rose Byrne and Judah Friedlander, lawn space will fill up quickly. Space is limited so if you want to guarantee a place, the organizers recommend you get your free tickets here.
