I love attending Tropfest in Canberra. It’s one of late summer’s best excuses to pull friends together, spread out the picnic blanket and watch 16 great short films. This year the films were all very entertaining and the perfect weather made for a great night. I think the event organisers do a good job of highlighting the local sponsors and providing a fun atmosphere before the films begin.
Can someone explain to me why the event organisers chose to have two tossers from local radio host a lame attempt at film trivia instead of broadcasting Tim Finn performing in Sydney? Really?
I will forgive the cock up during the Victorian Bushfire’s one minute silence… whether it was stealth advertising from TransACT or just someone not paying attention I will never know but Tim Finn- that I will not forgive.
[ED – The CT is having a gush all over local Duane Fogwell for finding “Tropfest glory” with his film NYE. A look at the actual list of winners has it right down the bottom picking up “Best original score” for the Sydney based Geir Brillian Gunnarsson.]
