Via Groupon

Sharjah Art Foundation recently launched the Sharjah Film Platform’s short film production grant, and they’re inviting aspiring and emerging filmmakers to apply for it. The new film initiative provides a critical platform for both emerging and established filmmakers in the UAE and its surroundings. Grants, of a total worth of $30,000, will be awarded to films the jury will select.

The initiative doesn’t just include a curated films and awards program, but also a public program. This will include relevant and useful talks, workshops, and discussions. Winners selected by the jury should finish their films on time to be screened during the SFP program in January 2019. Screenings will take place at Mirage City Cinema, Al Mureijah Square, in addition to other locations across Sharjah.

Do you believe you’ve got the talent? Do you have plenty of ideas stored in that small notebook hiding in your drawer? If the answer is yes, then this is the chance for you to pursue your dreams. All you need to do is submit a grant application and an overview of your project in the form of a three-minute video. It should present a synopsis of the genre, themes, structure, plot, setting, and characters for their original short film. How you present these information is for you to decide. Just bear in mind that you’ll be assessed on your technical skills and how creative you can get.

WE SAID THIS: The application deadline is the 26th of February, 2018 and winners will be announced on the 30th of March. To apply, you can fill in the application form here. Best of luck for the participants!
