Tue 29 Sep 2015 / News


Scottish Film Talent Network (SFTN)will open the call for applicants to Scottish Shorts 2016 on Wednesday 14 October.

Scottish Shorts 2016 is a short film development and production initiative aimed at NEW Scottish writers, directors and producers wanting to make exciting and engaging work that can reach international audiences.

STFN define a 'new' filmmaker as someone with little or no professional experience or film industry support, but a track record in self-funded or student films, theatre, radio or visual arts.

Scottish Shorts 2016 is offered as a first step for filmmakers, with further initiatives available ensuring a clear route of progression from short films to first features.

Prior to Scottish Shorts 2016 opening, SFTN will be travelling around Scotland for a series of events offering advice and tips on how to develop your story and make a great application. You can find out more about the workshops here.

Full guidelines and application form will be made available on the SFTN website from Wednesday 14 October onwards, with submissions due in by 17:00 on Wednesday 11 November.
