"The Watering Hole" Wins Tropfest@Tribeca Prize

Matthew Bonifacio‘s “The Watering Hole” won the Tropfest@Tribeca prize over the weekend. Co-jurors Matt Dillon and Naomi Watts were on hand to announce the winners in front of 5000 people at the Tribeca Drive In at the World Financial Center. The film tells the story of a young girl who makes the ultimate sacrifice to stop her father’s downward spiral into depression and alcoholism in the aftermath of her mother’s death. Tropfest, founded by John Polson, is one of the world’s largest short film festivals and one of Australia’s most popular public cultural events. The central aim of Tropfest is to stimulate the production of short films and provide an audience for the work of Australia’s emerging filmmakers. [Brian Brooks]
