Short Circuit Terms & Conditions

This page is a legal agreement and therefore creates binding obligations upon you. Please read it carefully. By using our application site you agree to abide by its terms. If you do not understand any of its terms please contact us at rebecca.thompson@filmcityfutures.com or seek advice from your local citizens advice bureau or a lawyer.

APPLICATION PROCEDURE

Short Circuit is funded by Screen Scotland and is delegated BFI NETWORK partner; therefore the initiative distributes National Lottery funding on behalf of these organisations via its development and production schemes designed for new and emerging filmmaking talent based in Scotland. 

Application processes, eligibility and assessment criteria for Short Circuit’s development and production schemes can be found within individual schemes’ Application Guidelines. 

The information in Short Circuit’s Application Guidelines is subject to change. The law and Government regulations on distributing National Lottery funds may also change. Short Circuit therefore reserves the right to review funding schemes and/or change its policies, procedures and assessment criteria.

Short Circuit will only assess eligible and complete applications submitted correctly via the online Application Form by the stated deadline. Applicants must ensure they have read the relevant Application Guidelines carefully and in full before submitting, along with the below terms corresponding to use of the Application Website.

Short Circuit can only make awards to projects that have been submitted through the online application process. This means that we cannot accept or read speculative or informal submissions such as film proposals, scripts or other materials submitted by any other means other than the online application portal.

Short Circuit and our funding partners may use a credit reference agency to validate information you have provided in your application. This is not a credit check and will not affect your ability to receive credit from other organisations. The credit reference agency we use may keep a record of the information, and may disclose the fact that a search of its records was made to its other clients, in order to stop fraud. By submitting an application, you are providing your informed consent (permission) for Short Circuit and / or the BFI to run such an identity verification check, including its access, use and storage. If you have knowingly provided false or inaccurate information to us at any point, we may provide details to fraud prevention agencies. If you are a company this will include the names of the Company Directors at the time of the fraud. You must undertake to inform all Directors, Trustees and Committee members of this notice.

FEEDBACK & COMPLAINTS PROCEDURE

Short Circuit’s decisions on applications are final. Formal complaints against the outcome of your application will not be considered unless the applicant has good cause to believe that the procedures for processing the application were not adhered to, or applied in such a way as to prejudice the outcome of the application. 

If you wish to either provide feedback on our processes or make a formal complaint against a decision, you should in the first instance email hello@shortcircuit.scot

Filing a Formal Complaint:

Stage 1: email us, either at hello@shortcircuit.scot or contact the Short Circuit Talent Executives directly and they will try to resolve any issues. You will receive a formal reply within five working days. Complaints that are complex or cannot be resolved may proceed to Stage 2 of the procedure.

Stage 2: we will acknowledge receipt of your complaint within three working days and give a full response to your complaint within 20 working days (unless there is clearly a good reason for needing more time). If, after you have received our final decision, you remain dissatisfied, you can contact the Scottish Public Services Ombudsman (SPSO) for them to review: www.spso.org.uk/contact-us

DE MINIMIS AID 

Short Circuit is co-funded by Screen Scotland and BFI, and as such any offer of support will be subject to the de minimis aid regulations as described below.

If you are currently in receipt, or have previously had public sector support, you should have been notified in writing of any de minimis element when the aid was awarded. You should have also been notified of the type of de minimis aid that you have received. The most common type of de minimis aid is ‘general’ de minimis. If applicable, prior to granting de minimis aid, Short Circuit may obtain a declaration from any applicant business, in written or electronic form, about any other de minimis aid – either to your company or any company that you are linked to. 

Under EC Commission Regulation No 1407/2013 of 18 December 2013 on the application of Articles 107 and 108 of the Treaty to de minimis aid (“the Regulation”), there is a ceiling of €200,000 for all de minimis aid provided to any one recipient over a 3 year period. Any award of grant given under the Regulations will be relevant if the applicant business wishes to apply, or has applied, for any other de minimis aid. For the purposes of the Regulation, the applicant business must retain details of the Grant for 3 years from the date on which it receives the last instalment of the Grant and produce it on any request by the UK or European public authorities. 

 CONFIDENTIALITY

Short Circuit and the project partners acknowledge that all information provided as part of the application process will be treated confidentially.
