Tropfest founder John Polson had the help of celebrity pals Hugh Jackman and Rose Byrne at the launch of Tropfest New York on Saturday. The world’s largest short film festival, which originated in Sydney, has spread its wings to the US, and the weekend event featured eight hours of programming played in front of a crowd of more than 10,000 in NYC. Hugh played host while Rose was one of the judges; she was on a panel that also included Friends With Kids writer, director and actor Jennifer Westfeldt, and 30 Rock star Judah Friedlander. At the end of the day Hugh announced Josh Leake of Portland, Oregon, as the winner of the festival for his short film Emptys.
