A Film Collective Unlike Any Other
The Bureau is dedicated to directly-supporting and premiering the best independent filmmakers working in short film. Our studio is unique in three ways,
We are a bottom-up, audience-funded operation,
Our filmmakers retain full creative-control over their work, and
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.
