Welcome to SHRTFLM!

This programme is an arena for independent filmmakers to showcase their work and be given the chance to talk about their craft to a wider audience.

The films selected for each broadcast are chosen by quality not content. This is an open and free forum. Work is judged by its own merit and artistic expression is supported.

“Best of the Best” is what we strive for here. So, congrats if yours is one of the lucky few to be filtered from the hundreds submitted.

Up to 3 films 1, 2 and 3 minutes respectively, are presented with each 10-minute broadcast.
60-SECOND INTERVIEW: a guest filmmaker gets to talk about his/her work.
SHRTFLM BEST FILM WINNER: Viewers vote for their favourite film.

What makes SHRTFLM different than any other short film website? Other sites may offer the ability to have your work shown but they lump hundreds, if not thousands of films together. So your chances of having your film viewed, liked, picked and promoted are rare.

SHRTFLM chooses 3 films per webisode, provides a brief intro for each film and you may even be asked to deliver some insight into your work and promote future projects via a taped interview.

Plus! WINNERS of the audience-awarded BEST FILM AWARD receive a FREE t-shirt with the SHRTFLM BEST FILM WINNER logo displayed proudly across your chest for the world to see!

Know any other website that does that? Didn’t think so.

SHRTFLM started life as SHORTFILM, a monthly live show of film and networking at historic rock n roll club, the TROUBADOUR in Chelsea. It soon caught on and was at venues across London, from swanky Soho boho arts club, BLACKS to a funky oil barge turned floating bar, the OILER in Docklands.

Along the way, we have gathered many writers, directors, designers, producers, FX-ers, festival winners and many more fans and friends.

Welcome aboard!
