Modelled on the world’s largest short film festival, Tropfest, Trop Jr is a short film making competition and a free, outdoor festival for kids aged 15 years and younger.
Now in its sixth year, Trop Jr follows the same format as all Tropfest competitions, in that all entries must be made specifically for the festival, be no longer than 7 minutes, and feature the Trop Jr Signature Item.
The TSI for Trop Jr December 2013 is “MONSTER”.
At it’s heart, Trop Jr is all about encouraging kids to explore their creativity through film. From where we stand, we can see a huge community of young kids with an enormous passion for filmmaking.
In the Festival’s short history, we’ve celebrated the work of some seriously talented young filmmakers. We have no doubt that many of the kids who enter Trop Jr will be part of the next generation of successful career filmmakers.
Why make a film?
Filmmaking inspires confidence, fosters creative thinking and encourages kids to explore different methods of collaboration and group work. And it’s seriously fun!
