We ❤️ Short Film 

Short film is where innovative storytelling is born. With the internet, the quality and diversity of fresh voices is exploding, yet it’s harder than ever for emerging filmmakers to reach a wider audience and break into the industry.

We are the launchpad for a new generation of filmmakers to share their stories on a larger stage.

Founded in 2007 by Andrew Allen and Jason Sondhi, Short of the Week has become the preeminent voice in online film curation built on scouring the web to discover and promote the new wave of emerging filmmakers creating innovative stories for online audiences. 

With an audience of millions on shortoftheweek.com, Shortverse and our YouTube channel, we have built a network of 30,000 filmmakers and featured over 2,000 short films across every genre from 50+ countries.

Short of the Week is proud to have as investors and advisors Oscar-winning manager-producer, Michael Sugar (Spotlight, Anonymous Content, Sugar23), and acclaimed filmmaker David Gordon Green (Halloween).
