Exeter Phoenix is offering £4,000 of support to local filmmakers through their annual commission scheme. This support will lead to the creation of four short films from filmmakers across the South West over the coming year.
Two awards of £1,500 will be made to support the creation of two Short Film Commissions (10-12 mins) and two awards of £500 will support two Micro Film Commissions (3 mins). Every genre of film will be considered including documentary, drama, animation, experimental, and everything in between.
Speaking about the commissions, Exeter Phoenix’s Digital Programme Co-Ordinator Luke Hagan said: “Offering artist support is a vital aspect of what we do, and we believe that short film can play an important role in reflecting our culture and giving people a voice. We look forward to helping filmmakers develop new skills as part of this scheme.”
The finished films will premiere at Two Short Nights Film Festival, which takes place at Exeter Phoenix from 27th-29th November 2019.
The deadline for submissions is Thursday 28th February, so act fast if you are interested in applying. For more information and to apply, head over to Two Short Nights Film Festival website: www.twoshortnights.com/commissions.
