Following on from the success of the Earl’s Court Short Film Festival in November 2015, four grants of £1,500 for short film makers and screen writers will be available in 2016. Grants will be paid at the end of March 2016. Filming should happen in the spring and summer 2016 to be ready for screening by the beginning of November 2016.
The only requirement is that you shoot a large part of the short film in Earls Court, using the streets and squares as backgrounds to your storyline. Also, it would be great if you would consider using part of the redevelopment in Earls Court as a background and Brompton Cemetery too.
The shorts will be screened in Earl’s Court in early November 2016 and in Covent Garden at a date to be agreed in 2016.
The short films can be a thriller, documentary or love story although the Film Festival is open to all your ideas. The short film must be filmed in Earls Court in the main but other locations can be used too. Please note that Earls Court has a colourful, diverse and vibrant history which you can tune into.
Send a CV and project outline/script by FRIDAY 4TH MARCH 2016 to Sean Duffy and Caroline Tod at .
The Film Festival can assist with:
• Office space in Earls Court which can be used on filming dates
• Audition and rehearsal space
• Support with locations
• Venue and audience in both Earls Court and Covent Garden
