Sheffield Doc/Fest & Just So Launch Short Film Fund 'Postcards'

Posted: 9th December 2015

The Just So Film Fund is a film fund created to support the next generation of filmmakers and champion creativity within short form documentary.

During 2016 the Fund will award 12 grants of up to £5,000 to filmmakers with untold stories and will also provide those films with a home on the Postcards platform. Three will be green-lit at Sheffield Doc/Fest in June 2016 and the remaining will be commissioned over the course of the year from online submissions.

This is an opportunity to experiment, to push the boundaries, to think about the way films are told & present true-life in bold and interesting ways.

To apply:

  • Applicants need to submit short form documentary ideas (approx 1-5 minutes) that concern themselves with form and not just content.
  • Email ideas to with a single page outline of your idea including links to previous work.

Deadline: 31 January 2016
