The Short&Sweet Filmmaker’s Fund is an audience appreciation fund, designed specifically for Short&Sweet Filmmakers.
Short&Sweet is committed to supporting short-film creators. One of Short&Sweet’s key goals is to help filmmakers achieve more career success and to ultimately make a living from their talent. We identify rising talent and bring them to the attention of a global audience. Short Film is a way for filmmakers to showcase their talent whilst experimenting with new techniques and ideas – these films require budget which is often hard to secure.
This annual fund – made possible by you, the audience and the short film fans – will be gifted to one Short&Sweet filmmaker each year and the prize money handed to them at our Short&Sweet award show. This show will be streamed live to our audience across the world. This fund aims to contribute to the creative power of short film and will go towards the winning filmmaker’s next project.
The fund is exclusive to short-filmmakers whose short films have been selected to screen at Short&Sweet in that year.
A contribution to the fund can be made by becoming an audience member or making a donation directly to the Short&Sweet filmmakers fund.
