Funder: Film Freeway
Opportunity Background: Filmmakers, get out there and start making short films for the world’s largest short film festival. There are two competitions: Tropfest; and Trop Jr which is for filmmakers aged 15 and under at the date of the event.
Films can be about anything but need to include the annual Tropfest Signature Item (TSI), which for 2019 is “CANDLE”, for Tropfest entries and “PIZZA” for Trop Jr entries.
All films must follow the Tropfest Guidelines & Rules for submission: they must be made specifically for Tropfest, not be seen in public beforehand and be a world premiere, (including on-line), include the TSI and not be longer than 7 minutes in total
$ Available: The winner of Tropfest Australia 2019 will take home a fabulous prize package, including a brand new Holden vehicle worth more than $30,000, a return trip to Los Angeles for a film immersion course and meetings with screen industry executives, courtesy of the MPA, $10,000 cash and membership to the Australian Director’s Guild.
Key Dates: closes 04 January 2019
