Join XpoNorth Digital and Short Circuit for a Q&A session about the funding scheme First Features, which supports feature projects from initial idea to fully polished draft.
Hosted by XpoNorth Digital’s Screen and Broadcast Sector Specialist Jessica Fox, Wilma Smith (Talent Executive at Short Circuit) and Julia Taudevin (director/writer/actor on the First Features scheme, originally from Lewis), this session will answer questions about Short Circuit’s First Features funding, for which applications are currently open.
The scheme is for writing, writing/directing and producing talent from all across Scotland who have bold and compelling fiction projects with theatrical ambition and the potential to resonate with audiences globally. First Features will enable Scotland-based filmmakers to take that career-defining step towards making their debut feature.
There are two levels of awards, distinguished between early development (to treatment or first draft) and further development (second draft and beyond).
The deadline is 10am on Monday 8th January 2024.
