LEGO DUPLO Launches The Tiny Film Festival

LEGO DUPLO Launches The Tiny Film Festival

Following the success of last year’s campaign, LEGO® DUPLO® is launching the second Tiny Film Festival to celebrate the imaginative stories of children under the age of five – our tiny directors! The Tiny Film Festival invites parents to bring their little one’s imagination to life.

All you need to take part is a pre-schooler with a big imagination to tell some great stories and you could see their idea brought to life in animation by a team of Disney animators.

Tell me more…

LEGO DUPLO is looking for four tiny directors with awesome stories to tell.

So if you have a budding film director in the making, submit your scripts to To prevent ‘writers block’, the facebook page will feature last year’s Tiny Films, so children have a bit of inspiration to get their young creative juices flowing. The themes this year will take you on adventures from your local garage, to the Arctic and even outta space with your little one’s favourite characters.

The LEGO DUPLO Tiny Film Festival runs from 7th April 2016 to 26th May and every few weeks LEGO DUPLO will select one child’s story to be stop motion animated by Disney using LEGO DUPLO bricks and sets and turned into a 15 second short film. Parents can submit their tiny director’s stories via

And the winner is…

Winners will be announced via the LEGO DUPLO Facebook page with each winning film having their own custom movie poster in the style of a typical blockbuster. The films themselves will also include a graphic intro and outro sequence, crediting family members of the tiny director’s choice, again to parody real blockbuster cinema releases - in tiny style of course. 

Tiny Film Festival – The Premiere

Every successful movie has a premiere and The Tiny Film Festival short films are no different. The four winners and their families will be invited to attend a special wrap party at a central London location in June where they will receive movie-star treatment and attend an exclusive screening of the winning films.

Imagination can take you anywhere

LEGO DUPLO is the ideal introduction to the world of building. Designed or small hands and big imaginations building with these bricks stimulates creativity, encourages role play and conversation, and helps develop motor skills in pre-school boys and girls. With LEGO DUPLO, imagination can take you anywhere.
