Hugh Jackman To Host ‘Tropfest USA’ Short Film Festival In NYC

A few months ago we heard that the Sydney originated short film festival, Tropfest, will be debuting in New York this summer. As a Sydney-sider, I have loved Tropfest for years. It started as a local and very small short film festival out of a cafe in the inner city suburb of Darlinghurst, and has grown over the years into the world’s largest FREE short film festival attached to an annual summer outdoor event that attracts hundreds of thousands of people. This year Tropfest is branching out into the U.S. and will be held on the 23rd of June in NYC’s Bryant Park. Today we have heard even better news – that Aussie darling, Hugh Jackman, is going to be hosting the event. More »

‘A Song Of Ice And Fire’

So … I finally have about 5 minutes to breathe before I have to take care of another 10,000 things. Yesterday was a pretty hectic day for me. Our flight from NYC to LA was much earlier in the day that usual and I had some errands to take care of before I flew out so my work day was shorter than usual. It looks like today will be another hectic day for me. Already, I’ve run out to the tailor to pick up my tuxedo for Emma and Josh’s wedding this weekend but I still have a bunch of things to take care of this afternoon before I head out to the Walt Disney Studio lot in Burbank, CA for an early screening of The Avengers. I know, it sounds like I’m complaining … but believe me, I’m not. It’s just … dang, there’s so much to do in so little time. More »
