Film Fest

Last night, Shannon and I went to check out the Tropfest Short Film Festival with some friends. We had never heard of it until the day before, but they claim it's the world's largest short film festival. We question this because of the Banff festival, but this event was live in five or so cities in Australia at the same time, so perhaps that's how they judged it. But that's not the point.

We were lucky to have wonderful weather, and it showed from the crowd. We wound up near the top of the amphitheatre, and not really by choice. Some of the films were really great, some not so much, but considering that the whole thing was free, they were all pretty darn good. Also, you get to bring your own food and drink, as in BYO, so it's a good time for everyone.

We also learned that this festival goes to NYC. All you hip New England readers probably already know about it, but if not, it might be worth checking out at a Manhattan near you.
