Tropfest NY, the world’s largest short film festival, took place last night on the Battery Park City Esplanade in New York City, Despite the rainy weather and competition from the opening night of the New York Film Festival (and the first presidential debate!), crowds and VIP judges like Julianne Moore, Billy Crudup, and Radha Mitchell turned out to experience eight original short films created by up-and-coming filmmakers.
As the New York Times and USA Today’s Pop Candy blog noted, the winning film, No Man is an Island, was created entirely on a cell-phone for just $57. Not bad, since the director takes home a $20,000 prize. Check out this amazing short below.
