Want to post an amateur short or student film?
Here isn't really the place for that,
but try (the somewhat similarly titled) /r/shortfilm!
- Anything that doesn't adhere to these rules will be removed. Report anything in breach of the following:
- Video links only. No images, articles, blog posts or memes.
- Rule of thumb: Make sure your post fits the definition stipulated by the Academy.
- No crowdfunding (Kickstarter, Indiegogo etc.) This is not the place to promote your project.
- Don’t post trailers. Only post completed shorts.
- Don't post adverts.
- Don't post music videos (try /r/musicvideos).
- Don't mention whether or not you have any affiliation with the film/film makers in the title. You can add these details in the comments, but moreover, you are again reminded that /r/shortfilm exists for student films. Consider whether or not this is the place to post your short. If you include first person pronouns ("I", "Our, "My" etc.) in your title your post will probably be removed.
- Don’t ask for views/upvotes/a critique in the title.
- Manipulative/editorialised titles will be removed.
- No 48 Hour Films. Only post polished, quality shorts.
- INCLUDE THE NAME OF THE SHORT IN YOUR TITLE!!! Ideally include additional information such as the year/country of origin/director/genre/a basic plot description/runtime and so on.
Examples of a good title are as follows:
Un Chien Andalou – (1929) Classic surrealist short film by Luis Buñuel and Salvador Dali
Paperman – Disney's Academy Award winning animated short from 2012 [6:32]
Examples of bad titles:
Just a video I made yesterday afternoon.
Check out this hilarious short film!
