The scheme funds up-and-coming Scotland-based filmmakers to create inspiring, engaging and boundary-pushing short films that resonate with audiences worldwide.

We are looking to spotlight writers, directors and producers based in Scotland; granting funds to create inspiring, engaging and boundary-pushing short films that resonate with audiences worldwide. Both live action and animated projects will be considered.

Up to 15 projects will be selected to take part in a 3-month development phase. After pitching for a production award in September 2021, up to 9 projects will be selected to receive up to £15,000 of funding.

Applications are encouraged from individuals who are currently under-represented within the film industry, including Disabled and D/deaf people, people from minority ethnic groups, women, the LGBTQI+ community, and those who have faced socio-economic barriers.⠀
