  6. 6. Online distribution Short films can be distribute in many ways, often they don’t go straight to cinemas because of how niche audiences can be and especially because of the length of some of these films. Short films can be easily found on sites online such as YouTube, this is free for the producers and allows for the films to be seen globally. It is not yet common for Short films to be on streaming sites such as Netflix, obviously this could change if a short film was a massive success. Distribution of short films depends on whether any distribution companies are willing to for short films that may not ever be recognised globally or create much success.

  9. 9. Short films can be used as a pre-sales technique to fund future feature films. An example of this would be lights out. Lights out – was turned into an American supernatural horror film in 2016 it was based on Sandbergs 2013 short film with the same name. This is the famous 2013 short film
  10. 10. Short films tend to be only recognised globally/ internationally when they get turned into successful feature films that can be shown in cinemas both multiplex or independent. The success from the short films can be used to fund the success of the longer feature films, because these short films may have established an audience already it makes the producers of the feature film aware of what sort of audience they are targeting and this can help them to make the film as successful as possible.
