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”.

- The first feature length film was the 60-minute The Story of the Kelly Gang in 1906. Before that, all films were ‘shorts’.
- Often short films are turned into feature length films: Whiplash, Saw and Sin City are all examples.
- Short movies are usually made by independent filmmakers with either a low budget or no budget at all.

- Pixar has screened a short along with each of its feature films during its initial theatrical run since 1995.
