Shock as Australian short film

The Lexus Australia Short Film Fellowship is the largest cash fellowship for short film in Australia, providing a new platform to support future generations of emerging filmmakers.

Up to four annual Fellowship winners will receive $50, 000 each to produce their next short film in 2016 and 2017, to premiere at the Sydney Film Festival in 2017 and 2018.

A shortlist of the best Australian entrants to the Lexus Short Films series will be curated by the Producers at The Weinstein Company, and sent to the Lexus Australia Short Film Fellowship jury. This jury, headed by Sydney Film Festival’s Festival Director Nashen Moodley, will then select the four winners of the Fellowships grants.

How to enter

The inaugural Lexus Australia Short Film Fellows will be announced in March 2016, and see their work premiered at the 2017 Sydney Film Festival. Australian filmmakers also have the chance to be one of the international winners of the series, who go on to direct short films that will be produced and receive first-look deals courtesy of The Weinstein Company, and tour to four international film festivals, including Sydney Film Festival. Members of Australian Directors’ Guild and Australian Writers’ Guild are eligible to enter.
