Claus Encounters Documentary


A documentary about
Discover Santa 2016

The Kringle Group, LLC is currently working to produce a small documentary about what will happen at the worlds largest convention of real and professional Santas, Discover Santa 2016.

Directed by Santa Bo Turner, “Claus Encounters” will follow the Discover Santa 2016 held in Branson, Missouri, July 6-10, 2016.  It is the World’s largest ever meeting of Santas and Mrs. Claus, and will include many behind the scenes activities of the convention.

Our goal is to record the weeks activities and produce a documentary that will document everything that happened.  from the opening “Kringle Family Reunion”  to the “Parade of Red Suits,” “SNO-lympics,” to the workshops and vendor showcase, to the “Red Suits Gala” and  the “International Hall of Fame”  induction ceremonies.

Filming took place mostly in Branson, MO between June 28 and July 12, 2016 as over 800 Santas and Mrs. Claus decend on the famed Entertainment City for a once-every-ten-years convention.

The documentary is currently in editing and post-production.

Funding for the Documentary is being made through “Go-Fund-Me,’ and those interested can contribute by clicking on this link:
