The best short films on the web
Are we in the middle of a short‑film revolution?
The curious thing about short films is that, regardless of audience and financial incentive, people have continued to make them with great enthusiasm.
The internet isn’t just expanding our notion of what short films are, it’s also influencing how many film-makers work. This can be seen as a profoundly exciting development, but it also gives rise to cynicism.
As traditional shorts mingle with other types of video online, it’s becoming more difficult to define what constitutes a short film. Music videos are adopting increasingly complex themes and sophisticated narratives. Commercials play like miniature movies, with branding banished to the margins.
