Tropfest is the world’s largest short film festival.
Founded at Sydney’s Tropicana café in 1993, it now has an attendance of over 150,000 in Australia each February, and thousands more in other cities through out the world at other local Tropfests.
This year, the $20,000 first prize at the Tropfest in New York went to a film called “Mankind Is No Island” which was shot entirely with a cell phone camera.
The music is perfect, the effect is simple yet powerful, and the end result is a very emotional film that challenges the way we look at the world.
