Short Film Central was started in 2005 to help filmmakers promote their short films. Since then, our international short film database has been updated daily by filmmakers, film schools, distributors, exhibitors and others in the short film industry. Short Film Central continues to grow into one of the most useful resources on the internet for information on short films, the people who make them, and the events which screen them.
As well as providing a hub for industry collaboration, a major goal of Short Film Central is to help extend the life of short films, which so often ends after their initial 1-2 year festival run. On every short film profile, film owners can take orders for their films if they self-distribute, or link to products available elsewhere. Film fans can request short films which are not yet available to buy. We support the idea of a more sustainable industry where film owners and investors can make their money back on their productions by dealing more directly with their audience, rather than always relying on arts funding and other subsidies.
Short Film Central founder, Andrew Goode, has been a short film director, producer, animator, film festival organiser and general film fan, with a particular enthusiasm for short films.
