Hornitos Tequila, a premium tequila brand founded on the belief that nothing great ever happens without taking a chance, in partnership with the Black List, has just announced the 2021 Black List x Hornitos “Take Your Shot” Short Film Program. The program will award five emerging filmmakers grants to turn their screenplays into proof of concept short films and mentorship from the Black List.
The collaborative short film grant program is a first-of-its-kind program for Hornitos and the Black List, who are joining forces as a continuation of Hornitos’ The Shot Fund – a multi-year, investment platform dedicated to empowering today’s generation of shot-takers, taking shots at trailblazing ventures in their careers.
Beginning now and continuing through August 31, 2021, screenwriters 21+ are invited to submit their script to blcklst.com/HornitosTakeYourShot. Up to 20 short-list writers will be notified on September 1, 2021, and invited to submit additional materials. From the short-list, five screenwriters will be selected by Hornitos and the Black List on October 1, 2021, to be a part of the 2021 Black List x Hornitos Tequila “Take Your Shot” program. Filmmakers will have until December 31, 2021, to wrap production on their short and until January 31, 2022, to finish post-production and submit the completed film to Hornitos and the Black List. Filmmakers will be provided mentorship from the Black List along the way to turn their creative ambitions into a reality. For all of the details on this program, filmmakers can head to blcklst.com/HornitosTakeYourShot.
