The second edition of the Sony Future Filmmaker Awards is now open for submissions!

Sony Future Female Awards

Free to enter, the Sony Future Filmmaker Awards elevates the original voices that bring a fresh
perspective to storytelling. The shortlisted filmmakers are flown to Los Angeles for an exclusive
four-day event to gain unparalleled insight into all aspects of the filmmaking process to advance
their careers. After a black-tie awards ceremony at the Cary Grant Theatre, the 30 successful
filmmakers benefit from a four-day workshop program. Aimed at breakthrough artists and
independent filmmakers worldwide, there are six categories: Fiction, Non-Fiction, Environment,
Animation, Student and Future Format.
New elements for this year’s edition include the extension of the prize experience to be a
four-day event. The additional day will give filmmakers even more opportunities to get the most
out of their time at Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City, California. The workshops will again be
led by Sony Pictures executives, all leading voices within their field of expertise, and cover
many different aspects of the inner workings of the film industry such as casting; physical
production; animation; legal; CGI; innovation at Sony; pitching process; sound and music
mixing; post-production and talent agencies. Screenings of all 30 shortlisted films and
discussions will be included, as well as studio tours and demos.

The program has been designed by Creo and Sony to give filmmakers an unforgettable and
exclusive prize.
Alongside the competition launch date being earlier this year, the deadline for submissions has
also been changed to February 15, giving filmmakers more time to prepare their submissions.
