About Statement

Finding quality short films should be as easy as searching Google, YouTube, or Vimeo. For the filmmakers out there, getting eyeballs on your short is as simple as submitting it to a big-name festival and hoping it will get selected.

Unfortunately, financing, distribution, and recognition are the biggest hurdles facing most emerging media artists. Filmmakers such as yourself have to overcome massive odds to have your work accepted by a reputable festival. It is also challenging to find platforms where you can upload work for viewers who seek your content.

These predicaments are precisely why we launched itsashort.com, a rewarding channel where creators and viewers can come together. We want to help talented directors and producers gain instant access to a worldwide audience of film lovers and supporters. We want to help film lovers by creating a one-stop shop, so to speak, of the very best short form content from independent and emerging artists.

With itsashort.com, you can enjoy and help support short film, or build your own career as a media artist one download at a time.
