About Postcards

Postcards is a platform for both emerging and established film-makers to create short documentaries that push the conventions of non-fiction.

Postcards is supported by the Just So Film Fund in association with Sheffield Doc/Fest. 

Since 2015, the Just So Film Fund has commissioned 12 Postcards. The fund is currently closed for submissions but please watch this space for more information on future funding windows.

“There has never been a better time to be a documentary filmmaker. Short documentaries are on the rise and we want to stoke the fires of the genre. In 1925 Grierson defined documentary as ‘creative treatment of actuality’ and we want to give filmmakers the opportunity to test that and make films with as much focus on form as on content.”
- Jonny & Jono, Founders, Just So
“Sheffield Doc/Fest is thrilled to support Postcards, celebrating boundary-pushing experimentation in the distinct and increasingly significant genre of short form storytelling. Postcards is a thrilling new platform that emboldens emerging and established filmmakers to experiment with new techniques in this thump-to-the-heart genre of documentary making” 
- Liz McIntyre, Director, Sheffield Doc/Fest
