About TROPFEST Arabia

TROPFEST Arabia is an expansion of TROPFEST, the world's largest short film festival. Now in its third year, TROPFEST Arabia contributes to the development of the Arab film industry by providing an opportunity for the region's filmmakers to bring their short films to the community.

As well as a public screening in Abu Dhabi in 2013, TROPFEST Arabia's shortlisted films will be available for viewing on the TROPFEST Arabia You Tube channel which has now achieved over 200,000 views. The Festival is powered by twofour54, one of the region's leading media and entertainment hubs, whose aim is to establish a sustainable Arabic media and entertainment content creation industry.

The annual short film competition covers the Middle East and North Africa and is open to nationals from across the region regardless of their previous experience. Nationals of Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates and Yemen are encouraged to apply.

TROPFEST Arabia films are unique because they have been made specifically for TROPFEST Arabia and include the TROPFEST Signature Item (or TSI), which changes each year. The TSI for TROPFEST Arabia 2013 is 'time'.
