Short film is an artform in its own right but it is also the ideal medium to develop storytelling skills and visual flair. Generations of filmmakers have started with short film and then gone on to the reach the heights of Oscar success or tramped the red carpet at Cannes.

Scottish Screen recognises the importance of a thriving short film community to the wider screen industries in Scotland, and provides investment to emerging talent via short film schemes and initiatives as well as investing directly in short film production.

Aside from financial support, we also offer information and guidance on making your short film and getting it distributed.

We will be updating this site with more information and case studies shortly.
