The Screen BC Short Film Award

Presented in cooperation with Creative BC and the Whistler Film Festival, the Screen BC Short Film Award provides one filmmaker with an opportunity to further develop his/her/their directing career by realizing a unique creative vision. Established in 2007, The Award was founded to recognize and celebrate the contribution of film and television to the Province of British Columbia.

The successful candidate receives a $15,000 cash award and in-kind production services up to $100,000 for a short film project.

This annual Award is possible with the generous support of British Columbia’s motion picture production community.  Applications for the Short Film Award open each summer and are administered through Creative BC.
