Shore Scripts 2020 Short Film Fund Is Now Open!

Call for entries (short film scripts) for our 2020 Short Film Fund.


The Shore Scripts Short Film Fund offers an opportunity for emerging screenwriters and filmmakers to have their short film financed and produced.


14 Award-Winning Judges will read the best scripts and decide on this year’s Grand Prize Winner(s).


2020’s Fund will award production financing for at least one short film with an allocated budget of up to $15,000 per project, with a minimum budget of $10,000. The resulting short film will be sent to our Judges, Industry and Directors Roster. That’s over 200 of the best people working in the industry who will see your work.


Plus, our sponsor ARRI Rental will provide free production equipment rental for the duration of the production.


Every writer who enters receives a FREE 18-page booklet on How to Get Your Screenplay Produced.

The Fund welcomes submissions from screenwriters and filmmakers from around the world. Screenplays must be in English and cannot exceed 30 pages.
