Short Film trivia


What Is Considered a "Short"

A short film is basically any film that is too short to be considered a feature film. There are no set boundaries on this, although the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences defines a short film as "an original motion picture that has a running time of 40 minutes or less, including all credits". 

The term featurette originally applied to a film longer than a short subject, but shorter than a standard feature film.


What to Expect

Most short films have only 2-3 characters in them, are normally between 3-5 minutes long and are typically done on a small budget.

On the website IMDB, it says that the most popular short film globally is ‘Tangled Ever After’. What is the reason for it’s success? The running time for the film is 6 minutes so how can they create a popular film in such a short amount of time? Tangled Ever After is a sequel to the film Tangled, which proved to be very popular globally.
