Objective

Now accepting Features, Shorts, Pilots and Docs! Every 6 months, at least one filmmaker will be awarded this production grant of up to $30,000 in production funds. We announce the winner(s) 6 weeks after each final deadline.

We are accepting applications from around the world (in English). Whether you have a simple screenplay or a film, pilot or documentary that’s already in production, we want to consider your short screenplay or in-production short film project.

If your aspirations are solely to become a produced screenwriter, you can rely on ScreenCraft and BondIt Media Capital to package the winning screenplay with a talented director and in-house production resources with up to $30,000 in financing.

In partnership with BondIt, a film & media fund based in Beverly Hills, ScreenCraft is offering two production grants per year to talented filmmakers for film, series and/or documentaries that display originality, vision & exceptional potential. Grant amounts will vary from $10,000 to $30,000 depending on the scale and merit of the project. This program includes creative development from the ScreenCraft team and production guidance and resources from BondIt and Buffalo 8 Productions.

ScreenCraft Names Film Fund Winner

Leading development consultancy and screenplay discovery platform ScreenCraft and Santa Monica-based media financier BondIt Media Capital have announced Cowboys & Pakistanis, written by Farraz Khan, as the recipient of their Spring 2017 Short Film Production Fund. Original and ambitious, the script tells a coming-of-age story that blends romantic comedy elements with political satire.

At the heart of the story is Yaqoob Baloch, a 15-year-old Pakistani-American from Ketchup, Texas. Optimistic and amiable, Yaqoob works as a human target at a War on Terror-themed paintball arena and never imagines that being a Muslim might cause problems in his hometown. That all changes when he begins dating Jennilee Cobbler, the high school softball shortstop, and must meet her staunchly conversative family...

A native Texan, Khan has worked as a corporate lawyer, magazine writer, Bollywood-journal editor, tech-startup marketer, and assistant to a TV showrunner. Educated at UCLA and USC, his first short ENHANCED INTERROGATION–a satire about a Muslim-American writer who is detained for writing a terrorism satire–is currently on the festival circuit.

The Short Film Production Fund is administered biannually in amounts up to $30,000 to talented filmmakers with projects that display originality, vision & exceptional development potential. The program recently expanded to accept documentary and feature submissions in addition to short films and online series. View this cycle’s semifinalists here.

ScreenCraft provides ongoing creative development and BondIt (with sister company Buffalo 8 Productions) offer guidance and resources throughout the project’s production. Previous ScreenCraft Fund recipients include filmmakers Natasja Fourie, Tom Botchii & Sam Kozel and Dani Bailes and Alexis Korycinski, Danny Madden, Chris Osborn and Matthew Thorne.

The deadline for the current cycle of the Short Film Production Fund is December 1st, 2017.
