Events

We will be hosting events throughout the year to inspire, connect and inform filmmakers across Scotland. For now, these will be virtual, and open to all.

1-2-1 Surgery Slots with Short Circuit Talent Executives

One-on-one meetings with our Talent Executives Alice Whittemore and Mar Vila Barcelo are available on a bi-monthly basis. These are intended for new and emerging filmmakers who are seeking advice on their career journey and opportunities available to them. We are not able to offer feedback on applications or project pitches during these meetings.

Filmmakers who require access or communication support are welcome to get in touch with us at any time to request a meeting – please email hello@shortcircuit.scot.

Meet the Producers with Andrea Cornwell & Oliver Kassman

Would you like to know more about the role of a Film Producer? Then join Short Circuit for an Online Chat and Audience Q&A with Producers Andrea Cornwell and Oliver Kassman. We will be talking about their careers to date, their collaboration on the highly acclaimed Saint Maud and what they plan to do next. There will be plenty of time for audience questions which can be submitted ahead of time or during the live event.

BIFA winner of Best British Independent Film and BAFTA nominated Saint Maud is the story of live-in nurse Maud who arrives at the home of Amanda, a famous dancer now frail from illness and trapped in her grand, isolated house. At first Amanda is intrigued by this religious young woman, who provides distraction from her failing health. Maud, in turn, is bewitched by her new patient. But Maud is not all that she seems.

Short Circuit Film Club

Short Circuit Film Club is a monthly film event for filmmakers (or those looking to enter the industry) and is your chance to engage with films from around the world, and network with other like-minded professionals. Each month will feature either a specially programmed screening of short films, or a debut feature film – local, national and international – chosen to inspire and connect our Scottish filmmaking community. Screenings will be accompanied by an event to give you a chance to meet other filmmakers, discuss the films, share advice and be inspired!
