We showcase the very best talent from around the world. The show is broadcast on Sky TV in the UK, Amazon prime in the US and UK and planned China. There are also plans for a channel on other networks around the world and a mobile APP.

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 30 seconds to 30 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.
Short film makers are continually seeking meaningful outlets for their work and we feel this is where The Short Film Show comes in, Upload your work today.

    Well worth submitting! It was exciting seeing my film 'Fort Box' shown on TV alongside a great collection of other shorts. As an added bonus it even received the 'Best short film' award. It was a lovely way to end the films festival journey.
