The organisers of Tropfest have announced a one-week extension for entries into the December 8 event.

Filmmakers from around Australia and the world now have until 17 October 2013 to submit their short film, featuring this year's signature item (TSI), 'Change'.

Tropfest Film and Entries Manager, Henry Kalaf says the extension is fitting of this year's theme, "With so much change taking place for our December event, from a new date to a new venue, we wanted to give filmmakers a little extra time to complete their entries.”

Fans of the short film event can ge their fix of Tropfest, with Tropfest TV on SBS2, Sundays at 10pm.
