shortFLIX Training and Support

Got a great idea for a short film? Want training, £10k and a professional crew to help you make it? Fancy seeing it showcased on Sky Arts?

shortFLIX is for undiscovered filmmakers aged 18-25 who are not currently in full-time education, employment or training. No previous professional experience is required, and it’s completely FREE. Selected filmmakers will be mentored by industry professionals. We would especially like to hear from young people who might otherwise experience obstacles to entering relevant employment, education or training.

For the chance to take part, all you have to do is apply with:

- Your film pitch

- Short personal statement

- Links to any previous creative work

shortFLIX is holding a roadshow event at Watershed in Bristol on 16th Feb – join us at

Application deadline: 8 March 2017
