SYDNEY – An Australian film about a woman in need benefiting from the kindness of others has won top honors at the world’s biggest short-film festival.

“We’ve All Been There” director Nicholas Clifford received the Tropfest first-place award from judging panelist and “Avatar” actor Sam Worthington.

Worthington earlier said, “It’s not about budget, it’s not about box office, it’s about pure entertainment and that to me is what film should be about. Not all that other junk.”

Clifford joked later that he gets grief about resembling Worthington, so their meeting “is going to give everyone a bit more ammunition to throw at me.”

The outdoor festival held since 1993 is moving up to Dec. 8 to avoid competing for attention with the Oscars and other international events in February.
