Scottish Shorts 2018 is a comprehensive short film development and production programme for new talent. They are currently targeting Scottish based writers, directors and producers with the imagination to create thrilling, engaging stories to share with international audiences.
As a writer, director or writer/director, ‘new’ means you have some experience in self-funded short films and/or student films which demonstrate potential but have not yet gained industry recognition.
In the mix of eligible talent, SFTN will welcome applications from independent filmmakers with drama experience, documentary or experimental filmmakers, theatre practitioners or literary writers making the transition to fiction for the big screen.
SFTN will shortlist 12 projects to enter into development before commissioning six short films in June, with individual budgets of £15,000. If you would like to be considered for this programme please download the guidelines and application form the website and submit no later than 10:00am on Monday 2nd April 2018.
