Once you have confirmed your full team, please let us know. We will require each person’s email address and mobile phone number in case we need to contact them. It is important that we have a record of each person on your team to make sure they receive festival updates, application process as well as a complimentary ticket the the Heats' Screening.
This applies to all artists and creatives that are directly involved in the creation of your work.
We will be producing program booklets online for distribution before the festival opens. In order to make this work, we will need your program details quite early on.
This includes: play title, writer credit, director credit, company name (if applicable), artist list, and a short 2-sentence blurb (max 100 words). This is your chance to word your film before they appear in the program and in other publicity materials.
We will be holding an optional poster competition! You are encouraged to create an A4 poster design for your show. These will be displayed online, at the venues and potentially in the program.
Posters should be portrait, A4 in design, and must include the title of the play, writer credit (if applicable), venue logo, website, and Short+Sweet logo (all logos available here). Otherwise, they can use photography, sketching, or graphic design to suit your own vision!
From Pages to Screen and Everything In Between!
