See why CGU helped Tropfest See It Through

Watch this short film, made by some of this year’s Tropfest finalists, and see why we helped this iconic Australian event and the world's largest short film festival See It Through.

The Tropfest Story


At CGU, we work with thousands of successful Australian small businesses to help them see it through, especially in times of need. And when Tropfest, the world's largest short film festival, was originally cancelled, many small businesses were set to lose one of their biggest jobs of the year. But after all the hard work they've put in, we couldn't just sit-by and watch that happen. So that's why we came on-board with Tropfest to help these small businesses see it through.

Ben Bessell, Australian Business Division Chief Executive for IAG, which owns the CGU business, said he was delighted to support this iconic event. “Supporting this fantastic cultural event is about creating a renewed opportunity for Tropfest and all those small businesses associated with the event to continue to thrive and get some business done.

Tropfest began in the Tropicana Cafe in Sydney in 1993, the brainchild of Australian actor and director John Polson. 200 people were on-hand that night, about 90,000 less than those who now fill Centennial Park in Sydney each year, making Tropfest the world's largest short film festival.
