What is the Short Film Fund?

* Open to recently completed OR partially completed short films ONLY. No exceptions!
* Only short films with a final running time (including credits) under 15 minutes will be considered eligible.
* Think of it as a finishing fund. You’re a little short on funds to complete your post-production, or you’ve completed the film and now just need some extra cash to market it and get it out to festivals. Then you’ve come to the right place.
* Successful applicants will receive up to a CAD $1,500 cash investment towards the post-production and/or marketing of their short film.
* Final amount of cash investment is to be determined by the selection jury.
* Open to filmmakers worldwide.
* Entry is via online application ONLY!
* Applicants MUST have some form of video to present (via online screening) using an online private or 3rd party video sharing site equivalent to Vimeo, YouTube or privately hosted.
* CSSC or the Short Film Fund will NOT download your screener or accept emailed video or file sharing/download emails a la YouSendIt or equivalent.
* There is NO fee for application to the Short Film Fund.
* Filmmakers are requested to limit application to the Short Film Fund to a maximum of 2 films per calendar year.
* The CSSC will take a Presented By and Executive Producer credit in all main title credits and copies of successful Short Film Fund financed films.
* Selection of successful applicants is extremely subjective and awarded at the absolute discretion of the CSSC.
* Cash investment will only be released upon successful contracting, execution and acceptance to the Short Film Fund standard terms and conditions.
* Fund is open year round and awarded on a first come-first serve basis until fund is depleted for the year.
* It is anticipated that the Short Film Fund will finance up to 3 projects in any given year through this program, though the Short Film Fund and the Canadians Short Screenplay Competition is under no obligation to award ANY cash investments should the jury not find suitable candidates/films.
* Though not a requirement of application or a guarantee of successful funding, preference will be given to producers/filmmakers who are making current or former CSSC finalist scripts.

  • Just want to thank you for your materials and help over the past year. I could not have raised the $1.5 million or made this film without the materials you provided -- and for $99? The bargain of my career!

  • I'm now sending out my completed business plan/film proposal document to potential investors and the one comment I'm getting back almost immediately is that it's so well laid out and professional. Believe me, first impressions really do count.

  • This is perfect! I have potential investors but I had no idea how to prepare a professional investment package to present to them. (I'm an artiste', not a business person. :) ) The information is clear and easy to understand, and Melissa is very prompt in answering emails.

  • When I came across the Business Plan Tools and the Finance Guide, I felt like I could stop searching for the pot of gold...I’d found it. In one place, with clear, easy to follow materials and spreadsheets, my questions were answered.

  • Hi Melissa! I purchased Package #3 a couple of days ago, and I feel like I'm taking a crash course in film financing. So far, what I've read and learned has been invaluable. Thank you!

  • I've made short films before, but this is my first feature, and the first film I've tried raising money for. This template, actually the whole package, has been invaluable and well worth the money I spent on it. So much information is packed into what I got that I'm almost dizzy from it all.
