Festival Name: Tropfest NY
Location: New York, NY, United States
TROPFEST is the world's largest short film festival. It was originally founded in Sydney Australia, is now all across Australia and in several international capitals. TROPFEST NY is looking for original shorts from filmmakers of all backgrounds and experience levels.
Tropfest originated at the well-known Tropicana Café in Sydney in 1993. Over the past fifteen years, it has evolved into the “Olympics of Short Film” and into an Australian cultural phenomenon with the festival screening live via satellite to over 150,000 people in eight cities across the continent.
A panel of luminaries, including Julianne Moore, Billy Crudup, bestselling author Malcolm Gladwell (The Tipping Point, Blink), actress Radha Mitchell (High Art), directors James Gray (The Yards) and Nash Edgerton (The Square) and producers Christine Vachon (Far From Heaven) and Bruna Papandrea (MILK) selected the night’s best film live in front of the massive crowd - as well as the Best Actor and Actress prizes, which were sponsored by Nicole Kidman.
