The Short Film Show is the go-to brand for curated quality films, audiences around the world know us as the home of short films.

There is a vast array of short films, many of which are award-winning and produced from budgets varying from nothing to £100k plus. They have often been financed through a whole host of means including crowd-funding and involve the creative talents of cast and crew all driven by one thing… passion, a passion to produce something that can be shared and enjoyed with others not just locally but worldwide.

Short films come in all shapes and sizes and their duration can be anything from 45 seconds to 45 minutes involving captivating storylines and superb photography. Some make it the local cinema for audiences of a few hundred before being transferred to platforms such as YouTube and Vimeo. While sitting gathering viral dust on these servers and being buried beneath copious amount of less ambitious efforts, they may have at least pushed their producer’s up another rung on their career ladder.
