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, recently announced the 2021 Black List 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, which 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. Op-ins will be open through midnight Aug. 31. On Sept. 1, up to 20 writers will be invited, based on the strength of their scripts, to submit additional materials, including a one-page personal statement and professional resume.
