1 SUBMISSION FAQs Tropfest Australia 2019 What is the deadline for Tropfest Australia 2019? Entries will close at midnight (Australian Eastern Daylight Time) on 4 January 2019 When is the Festival held? Tropfest Australia 2019 will be held on Saturday 9 February 2019 Where will the festival be held? The festival will be held at Parramatta Park, Parramatta, in Sydney, NSW, Australia What is the Tropfest Signature Item (TSI) for 2019? The 2019 TSI is CANDLE for Tropfest 27. The TSI for Trop Jr in 2019 is PIZZA. Filmmakers are invited to represent the TSI in any way they choose be as creative or literal as you like! Why does my film have to feature the TSI & how can I use it? The TSI is meant to show that your film was made specifically for the Festival as Tropfest is about encouraging production, not just exhibition. Try to make a film that stands on its own feet and include the TSI as part of the background somewhere. This will also enable your film to have a life after the Festival. Very occasionally a film based around the TSI is brilliant, so don t let us stop you if yours is one of these! What are the prizes for 2019? The winning filmmaker of Tropfest Australia 2019 will win host of fantastic prizes including a brand new Holden vehicle worth up to $55,000, with more prizes for both Tropfest and Trop Jr to be announced. Previous winners have won $10,000 cash, a return trip to Los Angeles, USA, for a film immersion course week of meetings with agents, studio executives and other industry professionals for networking, courtesy of the Motion Picture Association, and more. What have the past Tropfest TSIs been? 2018 Rose; 2017 Pineapple, 2015/2016- Card, 2014 Mirror, December 2013 Change, 2013 Balloon 2012 Light Bulb, 2011 Key, 2010 Dice, 2009 Spring, , 2007 Sneeze, 2006 Bubble, 2005 Umbrella, 2004 Hook, 2003 Rock, 2002 Match, 2001 Horn, 2000 Bug, 1999 Chopsticks, 1998 Kiss, 1997 Pickle, 1996 Teaspoon, 1995 Coffee Bean, 1994 Muffin, 1993 No TSI. Previous Trop Jr TSIs have included Rainbow (2018) and Mask (2017), amongst other items. 3. TF27 - Submission FAQs 2019 FINAL.docx p. Page 1 of 6

2 What is the maximum length for Tropfest films? 7 minutes including titles and credits. Is there a minimum length? No. Can I submit more than one film for the competition? Yes. There is no restriction on the number of entries, but you must submit each separately. Does my film have to be shot in Australia with an Australian Crew? No, you can film anywhere in the world with any crew, but you must nominate the country of production at the time of your submission, on the entry form, which will be taken as the country of origin. Does Tropfest accept international entries? Yes. Absolutely. Does Tropfest accept animations or documentaries? Yes. Absolutely. Are there other important restrictions? Tropfest must be your film s first public screening. This means that the film must not have been screened at any other film festival, or made available on free-to-air or pay TV, in cinemas, on the Internet or any other public arena. This restriction does not include private cast and crew screenings Are there any maximum budget limitations? No, there are no budget restrictions on films entered into Tropfest. Whilst some films entered into Tropfest have quite large budgets we have also seen some fantastic awardwinning films made for less than $200! Can I re-edit a film that has already screened so it fits the Tropfest Australia 2019 guidelines? No. We consider this a different version of the same film, therefore if it has screened previously or otherwise made publicly available, it is not eligible for Tropfest Australia What camera and format do I have to shoot on? 3. TF27 - Submission FAQs 2019 FINAL.docx p. Page 2 of 6

3 You can shoot with any camera and format you like (or can afford) Digital camera, film camera, mobile phone etc; digital file, film, tape; HD, Mini DV, 35mm, 16mm. Whatever equipment and format that is available to you. What format do you accept for entry? Entries must be submitted to us on-line via our website which will re-direct you to the Tropfest Submissions page on filmfreeway.com. Entries must be a 16:9 aspect ratio film file, in mp4, H.264 or similar format. Entries will NOT be accepted on DVD. See the entry guidelines page in the Filmmakers Entry Kit for more info. NOTE: * Finalist filmmakers are required to supply a 16:9, Apple ProRes 422 or H264 (PAL format) file at least 10 days prior to the festival event date. ** Finalist films will be screened at 16:9 widescreen. What is a logline? A logline is essentially a succinct sentence describing your script, summing up your story in an exciting or intriguing way. What is a synopsis? A synopsis is a brief description that outlines the events in your film. Usually 3 sentences to a short paragraph in length, around words. Don t tell us the whole story in your synopsis leave that to your film! Can I submit a film in a language other than English? Yes absolutely! As long as you include English subtitles. What if my film contains subtitles? This is fine, however please consider that the films are screened in a very large environment, with many audience members a great distance away from the screen. You should double the size of subtitling and avoid yellow shades. White on black is best in terms of visibility. Does Tropfest Australia 2019 place restrictions on swearing or sexual/violent content? All Finalist Films are classified through the Australian Federal Government s Classification Board. All films must adhere to a General (G) rating, Parental Guidance (PG) rating Parental guidance recommended, or a Mature (M) rating Recommended for mature audiences. For a complete rundown of the classification guidelines please visit classification.gov.au. If in doubt, check out Finalist Films on the Tropfest YouTube page - and use past finalist films as a guideline. 3. TF27 - Submission FAQs 2019 FINAL.docx p. Page 3 of 6

4 Do I need written permission from cast etc? Yes, you must request all actors, writers and composers of your film to sign a Release Form, which can be downloaded from our website as part of the Filmmakers Entry Kit pdf download file. You will need to supply these to us if you are shortlisted and we ask for them, and definitely if you are a finalist. If you are having difficulty in filling the form out, please contact us at We suggest you print out a few of these forms and bring with you to your shoot, that way you don t have to chase them later. Is it necessary to obtain signed release forms for people shown in the background of shots taken in public areas? You need to provide signed release forms for people who are featured and agree to be in your film. It is not necessary to obtain a signed release form for people who are in the background and who cannot be recognised. If in doubt, you can always ask people to sign a release form if they agree, but you may not need it if your edit cuts them out. If you do plan to film in a public place it is important to first obtain a filming permit from your local council or whoever looks after/owns the space/building. Does it cost anything to enter? Yes, it costs AUD $45.00 (including GST). You must submit payment to us online as part of your entry process (PayPal). This will be shown as US$33 on the on-line entry portal Film Freeway. This is the only form of payment we accept, we do NOT accept cash, cheque or money orders. You can pay via credit or debit card or a paypal account. Do I need to apply for an ABN number/register for the GST? If you are making your film for Tropfest Australia 2019 as a hobbyist - i.e. you are not a professional filmmaker, then it is not necessary to register for an ABN/GST. If your film makes it to the finals, a Tropfest representative will discuss your options with you at this time. This is due to the fact that we distribute the finalist films following the Festival. This distribution activity could attract a financial return for you (however limited!). To obtain professional advice with regard to ABN/GST registration we recommend you contact an accountant or the Australian Taxation Office on Do I have to obtain copyright clearance for the music? YES! You must own all copyright for or have written permission to use all underlying works included in the film including music, performance and script. The Arts Law Centre of Australia has a great website at artslaw.com.au with lots of information and advice about copyright. We suggest you a read through their articles on copyright as well as their short film guide for producers. Otherwise, If you would like further information on copyright and clearances consult our Filmmaker Representative at 3. TF27 - Submission FAQs 2019 FINAL.docx p. Page 4 of 6

5 Can I use any piece of music as long as I have permission? You can use most pieces of music provided you have received the necessary permissions from the copyright owner(s). Well known/published music can become very expensive to use. You will need to have cleared rights to use the piece of music in all media and in all territories (please see Terms and Conditions), as well as publishing and performance rights. Tropfest is planning a network broadcast of the event and acts as a distributor for finalist and short-listed films following the Festival. You must have cleared all music in order to participate in such activities and, indeed, such clearance is a condition of entering your film in the Festival. It is important to note that you are not just asking for a festival clearance of the music. APRA/AMCOS administers the rights for production music libraries and it does have a special festival rate for production music. However, this does not apply to Tropfest films because the films may be screened after the festival via our many distribution channels which means you would need additional rights and clearances. Try to use copyright-free or royalty-free music in your film or pre-licensed music. Don t limit the life of your film by making rushed music choices or leaving this until the last minute. Music should be one of the first things to consider when planning your production. Can I use music that I download from a website? Just because you are able to download music from a website does not mean you can use it in your film. In most cases, music made available to download is for private use only (i.e. not a festival screening in front of thousands of people!). If you plan on using downloaded music, please make sure ensure that it clearly states it is copyright or royalty free or that you have licenced the music fully i.e. there is no copyright owner or royalties that need to be paid, or that it clearly states you are able to do so. Having said this, there still may be limitations on how you use the music so we strongly suggest you read the fine print and contact the owner/s of the website just to be sure. Remember, you will need clearance in all media and all territories to be eligible for Tropfest Australia 2019/Tropfest 27 and Trop Jr. What is a music cue sheet? If you are short-listed, we will you a music cue sheet to fill out. It is basically a form detailing all the music used in your film (title of composition, copyright owner, duration used and the timecode to mark where each piece of music appears in your film). We will also you a completed example to help you with this process. What will the production stills be used for? If your film makes it to the finals, the stills you provide will be used in publicity materials produced by Tropfest Australia 2019/Tropfest 27 and in our Festival Program. What ratio will my film be screened at? Tropfest Australia 2019 will screen all films at 16:9 ratio. This means if you shoot your film at 3. TF27 - Submission FAQs 2019 FINAL.docx p. Page 5 of 6

6 4:3 you need convert it to 16:9 in post-production. There are two methods in which you can convert your film from 4:3 to 16:9: 1. The picture is simply transferred from 4:3 to 16:9 leaving black bars on both sides of the image (this method is known as Pillarbox). 2. The picture is enlarged to fit horizontally on the screen. Note that this method means that the top and bottom of your picture is cropped to fit the 16:9 ratio. There are pros and cons for both aspect ratio conversion methods. We suggest that you look into each method further and choose which best suits the look and feel of your film. Please be aware that older digital cameras may not have the option to shoot 16:9 so if you are planning on shooting at this ratio, make sure check your camera s features well before your shoot date. If you are short-listed you must provide an Apple ProRes 422 or H264 16:9 file, suitable for broadcast, in late January. Need another question answered? No problem! our entries team at 3.
