The Short Support Scheme is a Short Film Festival Travel Grant alumni network. Recipients of Short Film Festival Travel Grants will be members of the scheme for a year and will receive regular industry updates and invitations to networking events.

Shorts Portal

Short Film Festival Travel Grant recipients can have their work added to the UK Shorts Portal.

The UK Shorts Portal is an online screening platform designed to showcase the best new work from across the UK, exclusively for short film professionals. The portal is password protected and exclusively for the use of industry professionals including festival programmers, buyers, agents and distributors.

The portal currently showcases more than 160 brand new shorts including:

  • British Council programmer picks from Short Film Festival Travel Grant recipients
  • Highlights from British Council touring packages and programmes
  • Award winners from the last year

We cannot allow access for individual filmmakers or production companies due to the agreement we have with participating content providers. If you're not sure whether you qualify for access to the UK Shorts Portal, please contact us at
