Year 11 Film and TV student Austin Macfarlane has taken out second place at this year’s prestigious Tropfest Junior short film competition in the Under 15 section. Austin’s creative and highly entertaining short film 'The Sock Dimension' can be viewed on the Tropfest YouTube channel.
Tropfest is one of Australia’s most iconic cultural events. Since 1993 Tropfest’s purpose has been simple: to create platforms for filmmakers to generate new content and share their stories. Each year the festival delivers a raft of programmes that encourage emerging talent to participate in the film industry and has helped launch some of Australia’s most notable film and TV careers. Events include Tropfest, Trop Jr, TropTalks and more, which form part of our multiday celebration of Australian film.
