In partnership with Production Attic and Glasgow Film Festival Industry Focus, Glasgow Short Film Festival presents the fourth Short Film Pitch. Each year we invite five emerging filmmakers to pitch for in kind equipment hire and a small cash bursary to experiment and realise their ideas.

We’re looking for fresh, sincere ideas which cross boundaries and experiment with form, narrative or genre. We believe short film is an opportunity to experiment with form and narrative, unfettered by commercial constraints. We celebrate heroic failures - those films with creative ambitions that sometimes outrun their technical abilities.

From open application, GSFF and Production Attic have invited the filmmakers behind the most exciting five treatments received to pitch their projects in an open livestreamed session, to a panel of filmmakers and industry professionals. The panel will offer full and frank feedback. They will select one project to receive seven consecutive days’ free hire of equipment courtesy of Production Attic, plus a cash bursary courtesy of GFF and GSFF.
