JUMPTHECUT is the cinephile equivalent of Pandora Radio. A free, automated short film recommendation playlist sent directly to our subscribers' inboxes every month. JUMPTHECUT utilizes a unique algorithm that measures a subscriber's personality type and matches that to compatible films that we think you'll enjoy. The more you watch films on JUMPTHECUT, the more it understands your personality and recommends you new films.
Our first playlist of international short films will be launched in April 2015. JUMPTHECUT is currently opening submissions for our May and June playlists. We accept short-medium length films with strong cinematic language, aesthetic and director's auteurship with no limitations on production date. We encourage filmmakers to submit brand new films or rare gems that have been successful on the festival circuit but have not necessarily been viewed by a wider international audience.
A selection of short films from each playlist will be presented at a monthly screening at independent theatre THE PROJECTOR in Singapore as part of a public showcase.
At the end of 12 playlist cycles, JUMPTHECUT selects 20 short films from it's selection to compete for a PUBLIC PRIZE as voted by its subscribers. The PUBLIC PRIZE is a cash prize worth 1000 USD.
By submitting your film, take note that:
1. You agree to have your film streamed online on jumpthecut.com and/or JUMPTHECUT’s Vimeo channels for the period of 1 month with no exclusive rights.
2. You also agree to have your film screened offline to audiences in Singapore.
