Tauihu Media Tropfest Short Film Entry ‘booger’ Completed

Booger, Tauihu Media’s Tropfest NZ Film Festival entry, is completed and submitted.

Booger was written and directed by company principal Tui Ruwhiu and produced by Tauihu principal Brad Haami and Ruwhiu.

The star of booger is young Auckland actor George Beca, supported by well-known TV personality Orlando Stewart and actor Elisabeh Easther.

The 16 finalists for Tropfest NZ will be announced on 10 December 2012. The festival will be held at the Bowl of Brooklands in New Plymouth on 27 January 2013, Auckland Anniversary weekend, when a winner will be selected in front of a live audience.


Booger is a 3-minute comedic short film about Jason, a boy who kills time while waiting for his father by indulging in that all time boy’s favourite, making a booger ball. But then what? Jason let’s his imagination run wild before he has to dispose of the evidence for his pastime to remain undetected–an act that provides one final source for his personal amusement.


Tropfest is an annual short film competition that is open to anyone who wishes to enter – regardless of their background or experience. 16 Finalists are selected from an entry pool of hundreds of entries. Tropfest NZ films are unique in that they have all been made specifically for Tropfest NZ, will premiere at Tropfest NZ and include the Tropfest Signature Item (or TSI), which changes each year.
Tropfest is free to attend. The festival itself is an outdoor celebration complete with music and entertainment, public catering, red carpet arrivals and the highly anticipated film screenings followed by an awards ceremony.
