SHIFT Creative Short Film Grant

SHIFT Creative Short Film Grant

Film grants come in all shapes and sizes, supporting filmmakers of many different backgrounds. When looking at the landscape of grants available to filmmakers, there’s a gap around one particular format: narrative short films.

However, that format is an important stepping stone in a filmmaker’s journey, which is why the SHIFT Creative Fund is dedicated to filmmakers specifically seeking funding for such projects.

Filmmakers will be asked to submit a top-line production budget along with their application, outlining how much funding is needed to carry their project from concept through post-production.

SHIFT is dedicated to supporting as many films as possible within our available grant pool. While there are no official limits, we encourage you to submit a project budget totalling between $5,000 and $40,000.

Deadline: 30 September
