Here at The Skinny, we love films, and in particular we love the exciting, experimental world of short films. And we especially love championing emerging filmmakers who are working in Scotland's vibrant short film scene.

The CineSkinny on Tour is our way of doing just that: celebrating the best of new Scottish filmmaking talent. In May we're hitting the road for a series of screenings across Scotland, and we want to put some of your short films up on the big screen. 

We want to showcase the eclectic and exciting nature of the short film – we want to see your short drama, documentary, music video, art film, animation, and anything else you've been working on. As long as it meets the following rules, we're excited to see it and show it off. 

To be eligible, your film should meet the following criteria...

- It's under 15 minutes long
- It was completed in the past two years (March 2017 or later)
- It was created by a Scottish or Scotland-based creative team (director, writer, actors etc)
- It's entirely your own work, or with the appropriate clearances if it contains someone else's work (for example, if it's a music video, you have permission from the band)

There's no entry fee, and we don't need you to produce new work for our consideration (we know you're busy). From all the films entered, our submissions team will put together a programme of our favourites, which will screen at a selection of venues across Scotland this May – locations, dates, and how to get tickets will be revealed shortly.  

Interested? To put your film forward for The CineSkinny on Tour, send a YouTube or Vimeo link to your film, along with 100 words introducing the film and those involved, to shortfilm@theskinny.co.uk by 13 April.
