Short Movie Sunday: Six facts about short movies


This Sunday we will transform our special rooms into mini-arthouse cinemas for Short Movie Sunday. But what exactly is a short movie and where did they come from?

Check out the event here.

A short film is basically any film that is too short to be considered a feature film. There are no real rules 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”.

Did you know?

  1. The first feature length film was the 60-minute The Story of the Kelly Gang in 1906. Before that, all films were ‘shorts’.
  2. Often short films are turned into feature length films: Whiplash, Saw and Sin City are all examples.
  3. Short movies are usually made by independent filmmakers with either a low budget or no budget at all.
  4. There are many producers who feel that it’s actually harder to create a short film, because you have to fit an entire story into a specific, short amount of time. With feature films, you can take as long as you need to tell the complete story, so there’s not as much pressure.
  5. Pixar has screened a short along with each of its feature films during its initial theatrical run since 1995.
  6. Can music videos be short films? We think so. That’s why the programme for Short Movie Sunday includes one very special music video…
