Video: Ben’s a Tropfest fave

Movies are Ben Howard’s special interest.

The Trinity Catholic College Auburn student, 14, referenced his favourite, 80’s sci-fi classic Back to the future, and others in the 2016 Tropfest entry about himself, living with autism, and his love of drama.

Ben’s Filming The Movie was among 16 finalists judged by a panel of Australian film talent including actors Simon Baker and Rebecca Gibney, Moulin Rouge! cinematographer Don McAlpine, and The Dressmaker director Jocelyn Moorhouse at the festival held at Sydney’s Centennial Park on February 14.

It resonated with audiences who took to Twitter to share links to the film, which was directed by Home and Away alumnus Jackson Gallagher and includes scenes with his teacher Alex Rowe who teaches students in the ASPECT (Autism Spectrum Australia) support unit at Trinity also helped to produce the film with Gallagher.
