Anime St. Pete is a two-day celebration that will honor anime and the cosplay it inspires. The new event is on September 17-18 at the Coliseum and tickets are on sale now. Guests include six popular anime voice actors and a roster of Florida’s top cosplayers. Additionally, the robust programming schedule of panels and contests provides fans with constant anime activities both days. Anime St. Pete is especially excited to introduce a one-of-a-kind TikTok Film Festival where creators can compete for $500 in cash prizes!
What is TikTok?
For those of you that may not be active TikTok users, TikTok is a video sharing app that allows users to make and share short films. Well “short films” may be a bit misleading. These videos are typically 5 seconds to 3 minutes long. “Extremely short films” would be more apt.
The anime community has a huge presence on TikTok. There are cosplayers, anime video editors, anime skit comedians, and more! Anime St. Pete is looking forward to seeing all the creative TikTok artists our local Florida community has to offer in a spectacular TikTok Film Festival!
TikTok Film Festival
On Saturday, September 17th, Anime St. Pete will be premiering its first ever TikTok Film Festival showcasing TikToks created by convention attendees! Come watch the best of the best TikToks with fellow anime lovers! Winners will be selected by sensational TikTok stars such as @Elissakathryn_, @Danaduhbuffalo, and @Manatcosplay!
How to Enter
Join the fun and submit a TikTok! Anyone is welcome to enter with valid admission to Anime St. Pete. Don’t be afraid to get creative! We want to see lip syncs, original skits, anime edits, anime inspired make-up, dancing, and anything else you can think of!
Additionally, you will have a chance to win $500 in cash prizes!
