Young Woorabinda filmmaker finalist in Tropfest competition

JOBE Adams is making a name for himself in the world of film.

The 15-year-old has a passion for making films which has already seen him take out a top film competition.

Jobe, from Woorabinda, is now a finalist in the Trop Jr competition, part of Tropfest Australia, which is the world's largest short-film festival.

The Year 10 student made the finals with his film Buloo, which is based around a young Indigenous boy named Darren who wants to be like his grandfather when he gets older.

Jobe's film, along with other finalists' work, will be premiered to the world on December 7 at the festival. It will also be screened to Australians on SBS 2 on the same day from 7.30pm.

This is Jobe's second film he has entered in a competition with his first, Yolanda, taking out a film competition by the Berry Street Childhood Institute.
