The Shore Scripts Short Film Fund offers an opportunity for emerging screenwriters and filmmakers to have their short film financed and produced. The Fund welcomes submissions from screenwriters and filmmakers from around the world. The fund is open to new and previous entrants.
This round of the Short Film Fund (#SFF2) will award a Grand Prize of between $10-15K Cash Production Grant, and a 2nd Prize of between $5-10K Cash Production Grant. Arri Rental will support the productions with free camera equipment.
Earlier this year, SFF1 saw us award Lindiwe Makgalemele’s The Town a $15k Production Cash Grant. The film is currently in production in South Africa. And $5K was awarded to Australian filmmaker Boris Vymenets for Lady & Luck which will be filmed in Sydney.
We accept short scripts, animations, and proof of concept shorts for TV pilots and features.
Our writers have gone onto gain representation, sold screenplays, and been staffed on TV shows as a direct result of entering the fund.
Our 8 funded short films have played at some of the top film festivals in the world. During these difficult times, we are excited to commission two more standout short scripts for production.
