Here at we are always looking for ways to improve on filmmaker exposure and ways to screen short films and gain valuable feedback from the viewers watching them for the first time!

Our monthly Thundr Showcase is an exclusive screening event that happens once a month and gives others the opportunity to view your short film on their home TV, mobile devices and computers through our Thundr YouTube channel.

Subscribe to the channel here:

To vote for a short film during the screening visit:

A Best Short Film Laurel is awarded for winning the Showcase each month. Only 1 film wins this category!

Laurels for individual categories are awarded to each winning film.

You have an opportunity to have your short film posted out to our 12,000 strong filmmaker and producers mailing list.

All films that screen will receive full feedback from the audience in a PDF format that is emailed to you a week after the screening event has concluded.

How Does It Work?

We do ask that all viewers and short films submitted are all subscribers to our YouTube Channel. This is to help support our platform.

Subscribe here:

There is also a LIVE CHAT feature available but we do ask the filmmakers to be online so you can chat to the viewers watching your film and receive valuable feedback from them.

Your short film can be BRAND NEW or OLD as the event is a one off screening event viewed as a YouTube Premiere that is then deleted afterwards. This means that you don't need to upload your short film to our website and as the films are not published to YouTube you can gain valuable feedback and still submit your short film into other festivals.

Upload your short film via our FilmFreeway Page for screening consideration.

You must own the rights to the film or have permission from the person who does before submitting it to the Showcase.

The short film must be no longer than 8 minutes in total length. Though we can make exceptions if the film is exceptional.

All budget films types are welcomed.

Your short film may not be selected one month but may rollover to another month. Please be aware and happy with this option. There is no need to keep resubmitting the same film each month.
