Tropfest NY 2013 (World's Largest International Short Film Festival)
Posted June 16th, 2013 - 5:42 am by from Philadelphia, United States (Permalink)
Hi CSers,

This Saturday, June 22nd is the Tropfest in NY.
In "The Nethermead" at Prospect Park
Brooklyn, NY 11225

So you might ask, "What is the Tropfest?" Great Question!
Tropfest is now the world’s largest short film festival. It is supported by some of the biggest names in the international film community and has received thousands of submissions for its film festivals in Australia, New Zealand, Tropfest Arabia in Abu Dhabi and elsewhere.

This year the event will be hosted by acclaimed actor, producer, director and screenwriter Liev Schreiber.
The event will feature music, food, art installations and, of course, a lineup of great short films that will be screened and judged LIVE by an esteemed panel of industry and celebrity judges.
Did I mention it is FREE!
They do request that you register here, http://tropfestnewyork2013.eventbrite.com/, if you plan to attend.
For more information about Tropfest, visit www.tropfest.com/ny.
NOTE: SPACE IS ON A FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVED BASIS. Registration is recommended, but not required for entry.

Event Schedule

Yoga (1-2 pm) with Amanda Harding & Lesley Desaulniers of Prema Yoga Brooklyn
Live Music and DJing 3-8pm (They will show snippets of movies while simultaneously playing music)
Movie Competition 8-10:30pm
My Timeline/Game Plan:

I plan on arriving at 12:45-1pm to participate in the Yoga class and staying until 10:30pm

What You Should Bring:

I recommend bringing a blanket, yoga mat (if you are participating in the free yoga class) sunscreen, lunch, snacks, and water.
The rest is up to you.

Last year, I posted this event on CS and had the pleasure of meeting some really cool people from all over the world.

Hopefully, even more people will turn out this year!
I hope you can join me, I had an absolutely awesome time last year and I am looking forward to this year as well.
