Short Circuit - delivered by Film City Futures and Glasgow Film

Sharp Shorts is a new opportunity for Scotland’s most exciting emerging filmmakers to help reinvent the nation’s reputation in this format. Writers, writer/directors or filmmaking teams of writer, director and producer are invited to submit a one-page outline of their film idea. The best 15 ideas will be selected to work with the Short Circuit Talent Executives and will be supported to write the script for their film. Following the development stage, the 15 shortlisted teams will each pitch their completed script to the Short Circuit selection panel. Up to 9 scripts will then be allocated a maximum of £15,000 to enable them to make their film.

Please do connect with us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. We will be posting details of events aimed at helping applicants learn more about the initiative and find other filmmakers to work with.
