Is your child a budding film director?

LeapFrog is searching for the best young directors in the UK, with one lucky short film maker in with the chance of winning a family trip of a lifetime to Florida.

LeapFrog’s amazing new film competition is now open to children aged between four and nine years old, giving them the chance to star in their own film and see their creations on the big screen. Entrants and their families can upload their 90 second short films based on a family fun day out, to LeapFrog’s dedicated competition website hosted on, where they will automatically be entered into the competition.

When the competition closes on April 17th, LeapFrog’s awesome panel of judges – including popular children’s TV presenter Dave Benson-Philips (Get Your Own Back!) – will select the top 10 finalists to attend LeapFrog’s Short Film Festival premiere. Taking place on May 31st in the heart of London’s bustling Covent Garden at the spectacular London Transport Museum, this is an amazing opportunity for young film lovers to see their own movie premiere at the cinema.

The premiere will see finalists and their families make their grand entrance on the red carpet, greeted by the ‘paparazzi’ in true VIP style. All the shortlisted films will be displayed on the big screen before the judging panel crowns the ultimate film festival winner, who will receive the grand prize of a week’s fun family holiday to Florida, including an exclusive trip to Universal Studios – the world’s premier movie and TV based theme park – a must see for all film fans!
