An intense five-month development, production and post-production filmmaking experience, the Short Dramatic Film (SDF) Program has produced over 150 critically-acclaimed short films to date.
The program brings together directors and their creative teams to deliver a dramatically challenging and well executed short film, within strict constraints. The program is designed as an evolving, in depth and individualized filmmaking process.
Teams must balance their practical realities, and creative strengths and resources, with the demands of a professional production. The program delivers the highest level of artistic and cultural expression, technical and professional advancement, and a well produced film for international festival and distribution consideration.
“The programme played an intergral role in my development as a director through collaboration with talented peers and learning from industry press mentors."
