What happens when an overconfident kid makes himself in charge of his local library's volunteering program? It turns into a complete taskforce operation, of course! "Neeroy and the TPL Taskforce" is a comedy centred on the ever so cocky Neeroy, a 12 year old boy bent on enforcing the Toronto Public Library's book borrowing policies. Together with his team, Memphis the cool boy, Emmett the wise and Sarah the strong, the kids parade themselves around town as the library's own little police force. If you have an overdue library book, you better watch out - the Toronto Public Library Taskforce is coming for you! In this film, we follow the kids on another one of their typical raids - but this one doesn't go as planned. Complications arise, and Neeroy is revisited by an unfriendly figure from his past.

Set in the early 2000s, Neeroy and the TPL Taskforce is a story about friendship, compassion, accountability and taking a stand against bullying. Not only will kids be able to connect with the film, but parents will also be able to enjoy the fun-filled joyride, all the while reminiscing in the nostalgia of a time before technology and gadgets were central to our lives.

Short student film. Unpaid. Union and Non-union accepted. Food and Transportation will be provided, as well as a copy of the film once it is completed.


All minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Ethnicity: Asian or South Asian preferred. Role requirements: ability to ride a bicycle.
