This year we’re planning some very exciting collaboration projects and we’re working with Japan’s biggest short film festival, Short Shorts Film Festival who we’re delighted to announce will be visiting Edinburgh this year and we’re also curating short film programmes for the the Sardinia Film Festival as well as Hidden Door in May, Edinburgh’s own, unique, arts festival.

In addition to that, we’re working with the Rio Short Film Festival and bringing theĀ  best Rio-made shorts to Edinburgh while we’re also programming shorts for their 2016 festival! We should have some more details in the coming few weeks.

We’re also keeping our fingers crossed and hoping to take short films to theĀ  Trinidad & Tobago Film Festival in September and we’ll hopefully have some news about that soon and on top of all that, we’re also programming for the Scots Day Out festival in Australia in February! We’re pretty much coast to coast this year!

If that’s not enough, we’re also now offering the Rising Star Award for the most promising film-maker with a cash prize, tickets to film festivals, offers of work and the Rising Star Trophy sponsored by the Matthew Martino Benevolent Fund.
