From humble beginnings in Sydney in 1993, Tropfest has grown into a series of events spread across nine countries. Now, it’s the largest short-film fest in the world, and it landed with a splash last year in Bryant Park for its inaugural NYC edition. For its sophomore outing, the shindig is moving to Prospect Park’s Nethermead. The free event, hosted by Liev “Sabretooth” Schreiber, will need the space: In addition to a full day of screenings (judged by a panel including author Malcolm Gladwell, WNYC’s Leonard Lopate and actor-producer Fisher Stevens), there’ll be live performances from such Brooklyn-appropriate names as Chairlift, Neon Indian (DJ set), Bear in Heaven, Ghost Beach and People Get Ready. Though Tropfest is free, reservations are recommended. Visit tropfestnewyork2013.eventbrite.com to save a spot.
