SHORTFLIX is aimed at aspiring new filmmakers aged 18-25 who are not currently in full-time education, employment or training. We’re looking for ideas from creative, talented and ambitious young people that have the potential to make great short films for Sky Arts.
Introducing our SHORTFLIX 2017 ambassadors
Noel Clarke, SHORTFLIX Ambassador (Actor & Producer): Star Trek into Darkness, Adulthood, Kidulthood.
"These types of programmes are so important for young filmmakers to gain the opportunity for hands on experience along with funding to bring their ideas to life. This industry is renowned for being hard to get into, so it's great to see that Shortflix is supporting fresh, new talent."
Riz Ahmed, SHORTFLIX Ambassador (Actor and Filmmaker): Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Four Lions, Jason Bourne
"Shortflix is exactly what we need right now as an industry and as a society - fresh voices and fresh stories that open up the conversation about who we are. To anyone who hasn't had a chance to make films but always wanted to - this is your chance to make yourself seen, and heard."
Ellie Kendrick, SHORTFLIX Ambassador (Actor and Filmmaker): Game of Thrones, The Levelling, An Education.
“Shortflix is brilliant way to get into the industry, to make the contacts you'll need and gain experience. I would urge anyone who is eligible for this project to apply, not only does it give you the funding to get your short film made, it also gives you support and workshops to help in the development of your film, which is really invaluable"
No previous professional experience or study of film production is required and participation is free. Selected filmmakers will receive support at every stage from industry professionals.
Applications for SHORTFLIX have now closed.

Zawe Ashton, NYT Patron and Shortflix Ambassador (Actor, Playwright and Director): Fresh Meat, Blitz, Dreams of a Life
“It’s a pleasure to support this great opportunity for young undiscovered diverse talent to get a short film off the ground. Even if you’ve never had anything to do with film before, if you’ve got an idea, get involved.”
