The Sony Future Filmmaker Awards is a major program providing exceptional opportunities for creators and filmmakers.
All 30 shortlisted filmmakers are flown to the Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City, California, to attend a black-tie ceremony and a bespoke four-day workshop program led by Sony Pictures executives.
The Awards are aimed at breakthrough artists and independent filmmakers worldwide. The competition includes a total of six categories:

Each category awards a winner and a shortlist of up to five.
