Tropfest 2017 at Margaret River Winery - March 4 & 5


Tropfest is the world's largest short film festival and once again MadFish are excited to be holding their annual screening of the films on Saturday, March 4 & Sunday, March 5

The festival is unique in that all films are made specifically for the competition and must feature the Tropfest Signature Item (TSI) which changes each year. 

This year we are doing something a little special, bringing you Tropfest Retrospective, a showing of a selection of past winners especially curated for us by Tropfest from their 25-year archive. A screening of fifteen films from previous winners will be capped off by the winner of 2017, who will be announced at the Tropfest event at Paramatta Park on Saturday, February 11.

Bring a picnic blanket and settle yourself on the picturesque lawns of our MadFish winery in Margaret River and enjoy a beautiful evening with pre-screening live music entertainment provided by multi award-winning songwriter and lap slide specialist Andrew Winton.

There will be a variety of MadFish and Howard Park wines to enjoy, as well as a selection of hot food. Our winery Chef, Saul, will be serving up woodfired pizza and paella, Hooked Up Fish & Chips will be dishing up fish & chips and other seafood goodies, and sweet treats, coffees & biscuits will be available from Dunsborough’s Little Fox Coffee. 

Hampers are also available to pre-order and pick up on the night. Please call Saul Atkinson on 0409 888 600 for hamper orders and enquiries.
