Bureau of Creative Works

is creating Short Films
The Bureau is an audience-supported collective that funds and premieres an original short film each month by a new indie filmmaker.

We are dedicated to directly-supporting and premiering the best indie filmmakers working in short film. Our project is unique in three ways,

1) We are a bottom-up, audience-supported operation.
2) Our filmmakers retain full creative-control over their work.
3) Our filmmakers own their films. Period. 

We act as a bridge between our filmmakers and an engaged audience that believes in the value of supporting short films and the talented people behind them. The BUREAU is a place to watch, to support, and to create honest, powerful short films without committee.

As filmmakers and film enthusiasts, we share a responsibility to not only create and encourage quality films, but to provide a sustainable environment where filmmakers feel supported, and have access to the tools that they need to experiment and share their stories.
