Tropfest, Australia's biggest short film festival, has announced Night Of Nights, a Valentine's Day event promising lights, camera and plenty of action.

They've also announced a list of some of Australia's best talents of film and screen, who will be joining their judging panel. The list includes The Mentalist star Simon Baker, Packed To The Rafters' Rebecca Gibney, as well as Moulin Rouge! cinematographer Don McAlpine and Jocelyn Moorhouse, director of last year's The Dressmaker. These judges will decide which of the Tropfest finalists will win — among other prizes — the festival's fruity trophy, $10,000 in cash and a week-long trip to LA to meet industry execs.
