    The previous funny film I’d collaboratively made was Australia’s short film entry in the 50th Cannes, and won Toronto in 1997.

    So when I entered this year’s collaboration PERFECT CRACK in Tropfest 2012, it was with high expectation. To my surprise, surely through some inadvertant oversight, it was not selected as a finalist.

    Sydney’s bright and sunny sky lured me to The Domain, more than anything else to humour the judges and scoff at their error of judgement.

    MY MISTAKE! I am humbled…

    I waded out of The Domain last night. Drenched. Before I left, I genuflected in the direction of the judges.

    In the main, in my opinion, the selections were first-rate.

    Quirky humour abounded! The film which came 2nd was my fave, in a field tough to split.

    Hey Alethea, congratulations! And a question. Where did you recruit your cast of ‘freaks’? A more eccentric motley lot would only be found in a Jean-Pierre Jeunet comic odyssey.

    I want to see ALL the entries again. A free DVD of them will accompany this Saturday’s (25 Feb) SMH.

    Well done everybody!

    Seems to me Australia’s film-making and it’s judging is in good hands…
