Jason van Genderen's "Mankind Is No Island" - a 3-minute film that was shot entirely on a cell phone - took home the top $20,000 prize last night at Tropfest NY, the world's largest short film festival. Thousands turned out for the free, outdoor event to see the world premieres of eight short films. The films, which can now be viewed online here, were selected from more than 100 submissions from around the world. A panel including Julianne Moore, Billy Crudup, Malcom Gladwell, Radha Mitchell, Christine Vachon and Bruna Papandrea selected the night's best film live in front of the crowd. [Peter Knegt]
