IMDbPro is proud to sponsor SXSW Short Film Program supporting the discovery of emerging filmmakers. Ready to establish yourself as a filmmaker but don’t know where to begin? Making a short film is a great place to start. A short film can give you the necessary experience to make a bigger project, and a well-made short that gets attention at festivals like SXSW can also give you the credibility needed to attract investors when you’re ready to make a feature. IMDbPro provides all the resources you need to help you get started with financing, staff your cast and crew and network with industry professionals to promote your project.
Start with friends and family who may be willing to chip in to help you kick off your shorts project. You can also reach out to companies that invest in films; you can find these companies with IMDbPro. To start, research other projects similar in scale and style to your film and on the film’s IMDbPro page you’ll find companies associated with production and distribution along with their contact details.
