“Films make us laugh and cry; they inform us, entertain us and make us think. Short film is like film on steroids. For talent, short film vastly expands opportunities, provides an incredible forum for experimentation and creates a pathway for further success. For viewers, short film offers an abundance of dynamic stories, which are told in ways that they cannot be or are not being told in feature film, including films that may be uniquely relevant to their cultures. As the short film genre continues to pick up in popularity and competitiveness, with it comes an increase in the quality of production and diversity of voices ” said Carter Pilcher, chief executive at ShortsHD, the TV network behind the annual theatrical compilations.
