The 16 short films competing for prizes and glory at this year's Tropfest have been announced, and four WIFT members have work in that line-up.

- Lauren Porteous (director) and Greg Smith (producer) for ROADTRIP
- Stephanie Sinclaire (co-producer) for Tears of Valhalla
- Nicola Peeperkoorn (director and co-producer) for Xenophobia (pictured)

Peeperkoorn was also a finalist in 2016.

The films will screen for a public audience and judging panel on February 18 at the TSB Bowl of Brooklands, New Plymouth. The festival's future in the area is subject to funding issues - so if you're in the area, get along to support an event that enables film-makers to show their work.
