Trop Jr – the world’s largest short film festival for kids, by kids – is inviting young filmmakers to unleash their creativity on the big screen. Entries for the junior Tropfest opened Tuesday 12 October giving filmmakers aged 15 years and under an opportunity to show off their talents and walk the red carpet for the first time.
There are great prizes up for grabs this year including a digital video camera, educational filmmaking experiences and fame! Trop Jr finalists will have their short films screened at the Domain in Sydney ahead of the iconic Movie Extra Tropfest event on Sunday 20 February 2011.
Entries close on 6 January and kids can enter online at www.tropjr.com.au. To be eligible, young filmmakers will have to create a film that is no longer than seven minutes, as well as feature the Trop Jr Signature Item for 2011 – FAN.
