how we get the money & where it goes

At SLS we don't pocket any of the change. Every pound we make gets pooled together so that in a year's time we will have enough money to finance a short film made by you. Here's how it works: 

At every screening we charge £3 admission, but if you're a filmmaker, you can pay a fiver and we'll register you as a Pitcher. Each year when we the SLS Fund hits £2,500, we'll get in touch with everyone who has registered as a Pitcher and ask them to Pitch Us Your Short Film Idea. (For information on pitching and selections, visit our Submissions page.)
