Dropping short films…is the new rock’n’roll for A-list directors right now

Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, ‘What did Jack do?’  Review, Jan 20

Sharp Shorts is a new opportunity for Scotland’s most exciting emerging creatives to shake up the form and distinctively stamp the nation on the filmmaking map. Sharp Shorts launched in May 2020 with a call for short film ideas. From over 400 applications, 16 projects were chosen to go through script development with the Short Circuit Talent Executives.

9 film projects have now been selected to go into production, and will be shooting this autumn.
