Put your film project in the frame as the Little Pictures micro-budget short film program opens for submissions


GMAC Film is delighted to announce a new call for its Little Pictures program and hopes to see applications from aspiring filmmakers from across the far north.

Little Pictures is a micro-budget short film commissioning program that encourages new talent to make their first funded short film in the fiction, documentary, animation or experimental genres.

The program’s project manager, Wilma Smith, wants to see more applications coming in.

Project Manager Wilma Smith said: “This year is doubly exciting as we have two streams of orders, one for filmmakers and one for producers.

This year, we will order up to 12 film projects instead of 8.”

The program encourages new and emerging filmmakers to take creative risks, develop their voices, and kick-start their cinematic journey. “We offer training, mentorship and support from GMAC Film and other industry professionals during the development and production stages of your films, as well as production funding of £2,000” , adds Wilma.

If you are considering applying but would like more information or guidance on your application, sign up for the 1-2-1 consultation with GMAC Film’s Filmmakers Program.

Applications are open and the deadline is July 28 at 10 a.m.

Selected filmmakers are expected to join the training workshops in September and November before going into production. The films will be delivered by March 2023.

Little Pictures is funded by the National Lottery and the Scottish Government through Screen Scotland and managed by GMAC Film.
