Thousands thronged to the Domain in the balmy Sydney summer night opposite the Art
Gallery of NSW as Tropfest founder John Polson presented the VIP guests and judges, while
the films were screened on several giant screens.
Special guests included director John Woo (here to work on Mission Impossible 2), Oscar
nominee Rachel Griffiths (pic), Sam Neill, Bryan Brown, and Cannes talent scout Pierre Rissient.
Others in the VIP area included Yahoo Serious (three weeks before completing principal
photography on his latest film, Mr Accident), and most of the Sydney based film industry.
