Hold That Shot launches a brand new TV Programme for short film makers around the world to distribute their work. Its a short film festival on Television
The Short Film Show is a bit like a film festival, except that it will be broadcast on television. Why TV? Because many viewers prefer to enjoy content on a large screen, rather than watch treasured works on a computer screen or tablet.
It probably will come as no surprise that The Short Film Show is a studio based show all about, well short films. There is a vast array of short films, many of which are award winning and produced from budgets varying from nothing to £100k plus. They have often been financed through a whole host of means including crowd-funding and involve the creative talents of cast and crew all driven by one thing… passion, a passion to produce something that can be shared and enjoyed with others not just locally but worldwide.
We want to take the best new shorts from around the world, from film-makers of all backgrounds and budgets, and put them together in a digestible, eye-catching package. The short film show will be fronted by two presenters in a studio. They will take us on a journey through the world of short films with a short description leading into each film. We are working with a number of the largest film festivals in the UK to enable film-makers across the UK and the world to distribute their content.
Short film distribution can be difficult; not knowing how to reach one’s target audience can stop many talented directors from increasing awareness of their work. The process is so easy; film makers simply have to open a free account on our site and upload any short films they deem of top quality. Our team then selects a specific number of films per show and presents our selection to our audience as though they were at a short film festival. We hope that in a short period of time, the short film show will become one of the UK’s favourite TV programmes, or at least a cult show for those who feel like current TV provides little for those who feel ‘culturally starved’.
