Modelled on Tropfest, the world’s largest short film festival, Trop Jr is a short film festival for filmmakers aged 15 years and younger.

Now in its sixth year, Trop Jr is about encouraging young people to make films. It 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”.

The finalist films for Trop Jr 2013 will screen at the main event at Centennial Park, Sydney on Sunday December 8, 2013.

Trop Jr is a FREE event so round up your friends and family and join us for a day of film and fun!

Can I bring my furry friends?
