Hugh Jackman hosts Tropfest New York City 2012

I went to Tropfest New York last weekend. The free outdoor festival, considered the largest short film festival on the planet, was held for the first time in New York City, at Bryant Park near Times Square. A number of celebrities attended to show support for Tropfest’s organizers, most notably Hugh Jackman, who hosted the event.
