Posey, Crudup join Tropfest judges

This year marks fest's debut away from Tribeca

Parker Posey and Billy Crudup will join the celeb judge panel at Tropfest NY, the third annual U.S. offshoot of director John Polson's popular 15-year-old Aussie event Tropfest.

This year marks the fest's debut as a solo operation after its launch as Tropfest@Tribeca.

Sixteen shorts with a "sunflower" theme will be chosen from entries submitted by Sept. 5, then screened Sept. 26 in Manhattan's World Financial Center Plaza, with one winner receiving $20,000 and two round-trip tickets to Australia.
