Tropfest Winner 2012

The winner of this year's Tropfest is the whimsical Lemonade Stand, directed by Melburnian Alethea Jones.

This is the 20th year for Tropfest, the world's largest short film festival, which started in Sydney and is now held internationally. Look out for the Tropfest Signature Item (TSI)in the film, which changes each year. The TSI for Tropfest 2012 is a light bulb.

Lemonade Stand is a 7 minute film about a family business, starring a grandpa, his grandson and their lemonade stand. A real beauty, even if it does include a tyrannous 'Council' worker...

Warning: this film contains some coarse language

May there continue to be many more small Aussie businesses just like this one (...well maybe not EXACTLY like this one!).
