SquatFest ran for ten years at the same date and time as TropFest, from 2001-2010. While the hopeful entrants for TropFest were fretting about whether they’ll get the chance to move up a rung in the Hollywood Sweatshop, artists and activists from ’round Australia were living it up, projecting films and videos in an inspiring squatted venue.

SquatFest began at the Broadway Squats in 2001, and has since made appearances at the Midnight Star Social Centre, the Sydney Park Brickworks, the Sydney Dental Hospital,harbour views, under the grandstand at Esrkineville, and many other amazing venues. Our film programmes have toured to Newcastle, Melbourne, Perth, and Indonesia.”
