Scottish Shorts 2018


Scottish Shorts 2018 – CLOSED

Scottish Shorts 2018 is a comprehensive short film development and production programme for NEW filmmaking talent. Scottish Shorts is 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 the development process with us before commissioning six short films in July, with individual budgets of £15,000. If you would like to be considered for this programme please download the guidelines and application form below and submit no later than 10:00am on Monday 2nd April 2018.

Producers and Directors without a project who are interested to engage with the selected short film teams should complete the registering interest form below.
