Short Film Fund | 2021 Spring Season
DISCOVERING THE BEST NEW SCREENWRITING TALENT FROM AROUND THE WORLD.
The Shore Scripts Short Film Fund offers you an opportunity to have your short film script financed and produced.
The 2021 Spring Season of our Short Film Fund opens JANUARY 15 and will award production financing for two short films:
* Grand Prize - A Production Cash Grant of $15K.
* 2nd Place Prize - A Production Cash Grant of $10K.
Our sponsor ARRI Rental will provide free production equipment rental for the duration of production in any country in which they operate.
The Fund welcomes submissions from screenwriters and filmmakers from around the world.
We accept short scripts, animations, web-series pilots, and proof-of-concept shorts for TV pilots and features.
Screenplays must be in English; however, the production can be filmed in any country.
We can offer end-to-end support from script development to post-production and promotion.
Our previous 10 funded short films have played at some of the top film festivals in the world, including Tribeca, BFI London, Austin, Cannes, Encounters, Palm Springs, and many others. Our writers have gone onto gain representation, sold screenplays, and been staffed on TV shows as a direct result of entering.
