2013 Tropfest Film Festival Winner We've All Been There

Watch Tropfest 2013 Winning Film We've All Been There

The winning short film from this year’s Tropfest Film Festival was We’ve All Been There, a 6:47 minute film described by its filmmaker Nicholas Clifford as being about “how other people can help other people almost indirectly . . . a bit of a karma story.” It’s based on a short story called What Goes Around Comes Around and revolves around three main characters: Jess, a pregnant waitress who needs $800 right away to pay her overdue rent; Joan, a woman stuck in the middle of nowhere with a flat tyre, and Matt, who’s looking for work.

The Tropfest Signature Item (TSI) for 2013 was balloon, and its placement is very subtle in this short — a tattoo on Matt’s hand. The film had a more serious tone among the comedies of the night, which “terrified” Nicholas, but its sweet story won over celebrity judges including Sam Worthington, Magda Szubanski and Rebecca Gibney, and Laura Wheelwright, who played pregnant Jess, won best actress. Nicholas has won a $10,000 cash prize, a trip to LA and a car from Toyota. Watch his winning entry after the jump.
