Will Screening My Film Online Hurt My Chances of Entering it into a Festival?
Some, but not all, festivals will not let your submit your film if it’s been screened to a wide audience online. If this concerns you, and you are participating in Shortfundly Screenings, please select the private option. You will still be able to password protect your film on your Vimeo or YouTube page and it will only been seen by the industry professionals personally vetted by Shortfundly.
While the option is purely yours, we recommend taking into account the likelihood that more festivals will be impacted by the Coronavirus. Our mission is to get you the exposure your short films, shows and digital content so richly deserve.
How Do Shortfundly Screenings Work?
We are providing dedicated online platform to connecting creators of films that are official film selections with industry professionals, with two screening settings:

If an industry professional requests an introduction to the filmmaker we will connect you. There is no fee on either side to participate.
