FIRST Short Film Project (FSFP), along with Competition and Screening, is part of the FIRST Creative Incubation system. FSFP, together with FIRST Training Camp, FIRST Financing Forum and FIRST Lab, forms a service platform for emerging filmmakers. FSFP and FIRST Training Camp focus more on hands-on experience, whereas the latter two lean towards script polishing.
As an initial form of film, short film carries the primitive power of cinema. It often embodies freewheeling expression, unbounded by narrative conventions. It presents various expressions, and never stops inspiring the upcoming generation of filmmakers.
What FSFP does every year is to create a free and inspiring atmosphere for emerging filmmakers with our patience and sharp sensibility.
Therefore, every season FIRST chooses suitable partners who share the same goal. Together we are to provide a broad and liberal environment for young filmmakers, hoping to meet astonishing imagination carried out by the form of short film. We join efforts to create a short film carnival.
