Directors

  1. Directing for Short+Sweet is one of the most critical roles of the festival. Without our writers there would be no festival, but without directors to realize the writer’s vision, scripts would never be able to come to life!


    As a Short+Sweet Hollywood director, you not only get to show your unique leadership style and be entrusted to nurture your team of actors, but you will also be guided and mentored through the entire process of theatre making. Short+Sweet Hollywood is a wonderful opportunity for directors to explore their creativity, all the while being in the heart of Los Angeles and the creative communities that surround!


    We very much encourage new directors to register and learn a new skill. Our Festival Director Ashley Karp and Assistant Festival Director Soda Persi are very passionate about supporting our new directors and will be there to mentor you throughout the process.


    Directors: Submit HERE to join for Short+Sweet Hollywood 2024!

    If you are an established theatre company, this is the perfect way of promoting your own theatre group, by submitting your own script, director and even your own actors (if you wish). Your company will be promoted as part of the festival, and your name credited on the weekly program. 


     


    However, you do not need to be an established theatre entity to submit as a group for Short+Sweet, you can assemble a group of creatives specifically to produce your short play for the festival if you wish, you'll just to think of a cool name!

Your submission may include actors if you wish, or you may cast from our Short+Sweet open auditions.


     


    Your submission will be assessed as a complete application. 


     


    There is no application fee for submitting an ITC, but if you would like your script submitted to our international pool for possible production at our festivals around the world, please also remember to submit your script at the shortandsweet.org website in addition to completing your ITC application for the Illawarra festival (there is a submission fee of approx. $20 Australian dollars/$13 USD).

    • Section 1: The Script (and the writer)

    • Section 2: Director

    • Section 3: Actors & Company

    • Section 4: Group Info
