The Sony Future Filmmaker Awards is a major annual awards program established by Creo and sponsored by Sony. It is a competition for short films "devoted to supporting and elevating independent filmmakers from around the globe."

Creo has just announced the 30 filmmakers that make up its shortlist for the 2024 competition, with the entire shortlist given the unique experience of attending a week of special events at the Sony Pictures Studios lot in Los Angeles. The winners will be selected by a panel of industry-leading judges, and will be presented with a cash prize along with some of the market's best cine cameras and lenses.
