Schortcut Films (“Schortcut”) is a company dedicated to financing and coproducing independent feature films. It was founded by Georges Schoucair, best known for producing some of the most critically acclaimed Lebanese films.

Schortcut’s aim is to support differentiated and ambitious independent films, which feature stories transcending boundaries and cultures, and are able to appeal to an internationally-wide audience while at the same time respond to an increasing demand for an alternative, engaging and stimulating cinema.

Building on the decade-long success of Schoucair’s production house, Abbout Productions (www.abboutproductions. com), Schortcut currently backs renowned producers and new talents in making diverse genre “author films” with imaginative scenarios and support them in finding the necessary funding for their productions, with a purpose of commercial success.
