Josh Leake Wins the MPA Top Prize for “Emptys” At TROPFEST Short Film Festival
After nearly eight hours of programming and in front of a capacity crowd of more than 10,000 people, Tropfest – the world’s largest short film festival - concluded in New York with Josh Leake of Portland, Oregon claiming the top prize for a film called “Emptys,” made for merely $1,300 dollars. The aspiring filmmaker beat out seven other hopefuls in the first ever U.S. Tropfest competition, and earned $20,000 from the Motion Picture Association (MPA). Alexander Poe came in second and Matt Hulse rounded out the top three for their films “The Break-Up Tour” and ”Elvis: The Lonely Hunter of Circle-Beach,” while Ian Unterman and Eliza D’Souza earned best actor and best actress honors for their starring turns in “The Break-Up Tour” and “Elevator” respectively. An all-star panel of judges including Rose Byrne, Jennifer Westfeldt, Judah Friedlander, producer Ted Hope and Film Society of Lincoln Center’s Scott Foundas deliberated for 15 minutes before rendering their verdict, which event host Hugh Jackman announced shortly before 11:00 p.m.
