YES, I WENT!!! Did you go??
I would actually be surprised if Brooklyn Mak didn`t go. Really surprised.
What is Tropfest, you ask? It is a Short Film Festival. This is the first year that it`s ever been in NYC. :) Upcoming filmmakers have the chance to be a part of this festival. The winner wins $20,000 cash, a screening on Starz Cinema nationally and a week of meetings with some of Hollywood`s decision makers. Tropfest USA is supported by official Ambassadors such as Russel Crow, Hugh Jackman, Nicole Kidman, among others. To read more about the history, click http://tropfest.com/ny/about/history-of-tropfest/. Tropfest NY was open to the public & absolutely free to attend. It was from 3-11pm and hosted by the sexy Hugh Jackman. To a guarantee a place they recommended people to get tickets, which I did. But they didn`t even look at the tickets, they just threw it in the garbage after they glanced at it. I took lots of pictures. Even though it started at 3pm, The films didn`t start until 8pm. I brought my best friend and her nephew along, we got there around 4pm and we just found a spot on the grass and waited. After a while, my best friend stayed to hold the spot while me & her nephew went to get food. Plus there was a street fair going on so we went to check out the food. :) When we got back, we ended up taking a nap until 7:30pm. When it started, Hugh Jackman was just sooooooooo fine. :) We weren`t that close to the stage BUT we could see him from the jumbo tron. I took a picture of him on the stage to give you an idea from where we were. They also showed us some
Tropfest Featured Films. There was a film, Animal Beatbox, it was such a catchy tune and I loved it. Another one called Boo was good too. The panel of judges were Judah Friedlander (
30 rock), Scott Foundas (
Renowned film critc), Jennifer Westfeldt (
Kissing Jessica Stein), producer Ted Hope (
Adventureland) and Rose Byrne (
X Men: First Class). All the films in the running, had to have a bagel in the video. All were amazing but the two I really liked were Break Up Tour & Elvis: The Lonely Hunter of Circle-Beach. We all met Elvis on the jumbo tron, he was sooo adorable, I would of petted him. :) The grand prize winner was Josh Leake`s for his film Emptys. More details can be read http://tropfest.com/ny/2012/06/24/tropfest-shorts-conquer-big-apple-in-u-s-debut/. His acceptance speech was so cute since he was the phone with his mom. Josh even got Hugh Jackman to sing New York with him. Which I recorded, :p The Tropfest Signature Item for next year is Bridge. I will be coming again next year and coming even earlier. Hugh Jackman mentioned that since so many people came then maybe next year we should do it in Central Park. :) Also there will be an OOTD post coming up.
Will you be making a film for next year? Did you attend yesterday? Will you attend next year? Did you attend the Vegas one? newYork
