Job Description

Film City Futures is looking for two creative Talent Executives to deliver Short Circuit – an ambitious new film talent development project in Scotland.

Short Circuit is delivered by Film City Futures in partnership with Glasgow Film, and funded by Screen Scotland and BFI NETWORK. The programme launches on 12th May 2020 and will run until the end of March 2022. Up to nine short scripted films will be developed and produced each year, and up to ten first time feature writers will also be supported to develop a polished script over the two years. 

Short Circuit aims to become the key hub for new filmmaking talent in Scotland, supporting writers, directors and producers from across Scotland to develop creatively and professionally, and raising the overall creative and commercial success of Scotland’s film sector. 

We’re looking for two creative, driven individuals with a track record in identifying, fostering, and nurturing new and emerging writing, producing, and directing talent. The two Talent Executives will work closely together and with the Film City Futures and Glasgow Film teams to ensure seamless and equal support for filmmakers across Scotland. 

The roles will be based in Scotland, with at least one Talent Executive working from Film City Glasgow.

The closing date for applications is 11.59pm on Tuesday 9th June. Interviews will take place in the week beginning 15th June.
