SOCIAL SPY** Tropfest


Back for it’s 21st installment, Australia’s largest short film festival Tropfest had a stellar line-up of talent and celebrity guests yesterday!

This year, taking to the black carpet was a host of Aussie superstars, including Hollywood heavyweight Sam Worthington, who was one of this year’s judges.


The ‘Clash of the Titans’ star, who won ‘Best Actor’ at the ‘2000 Tropfest festival’ for his role in short film ‘A Matter of Life’, revealed to the media beforehand what he was looking out for while judging.

“The thing I want to see is how the films connect with the audience,” he confided.

Also attending the bash as judges, was ‘Packed to the Rafter’s’ Rebecca Gibney, ‘Kath and Kim’ star Magda Szubanski and actor Richard Roxborough.



The traditional signature item in each film this year was a balloon, and the story lines in each flick were original, ranging from water fights to time travel or milkshake bombs and many other themes portrayed in the 16 finalist clips.

The official event was held yesterday at The Domain in Sydney, with live sites set up across the country in Melbourne, Canberra, Perth, Wollongong, Hobart and Surfers Paradise.

The winner of the evening was Nick Clifford for his masterpiece ‘We’ve All Been There’, about a pregnant waitress who is down on her luck. Nick scored himself the top prize with a heap of goodies as well as a trip to LA for a week of meetings with film industry directives.

An impromptu award was created by ‘Avatar’ star Worthington yesterday, who offered $3000 for best personality in a feature. He handed this to Sydney Pensioner and dancing busker Raymond Borzelli, who appeared in Jefferson Grainger’s film ‘Better Than Sinatra’, which came in second place.

One thought on “SOCIAL SPY** Tropfest

  1. Widen your grip to work a different part of the bicep.
    Adjustable dumbbells come in handy when you need to transport them as
    well. To do this, start by sitting in an upright position and then holding two dumbbells in both hands, making sure that the palms are
    facing each other and your arms should be hanging
    at your sides.
