Shorts Showcase features short films from all over the world.
We bring festival quality short films to our broad audience of film enthusiasts –
but also into the living rooms and armchairs of agents, producers, directors and
all those who live and work in Hollywood!
We reach 18 million homes, twice each week, throughout Southern California, covering the 5 counties of Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino, Riverside – through the Coachella Valley and North San Diego.
Our show is also available online after the initial broadcasts and reaches our global audience of filmmakers and enthusiasts from places including, but not limited to including, England, India, Saudi Arabia, Ireland, and Australia.
Short films lead to feature films and Shorts Showcase provides this much needed exposure for short filmmakers, helping them reach a much broader audience, opening up their chances for future work and creativity.
While it is becoming much harder for filmmakers here in the United States, this is two fold for foreign filmmakers, especially filmmakers in "third world"countries. Making it into film competitions and festivals is much harder, and that is where Shorts Showcase comes in. To showcase films from around the world that would not normally make it into other film festivals. We can provide that first exposure into the film exhibition world and provide life after the festival circuit. When any short film is finished with the festivals, there is little else for it to do. We provide extended life.
Shorts in the classroom:
Shorts Showcase works hard to showcase the works of upcoming filmmakers, as a way to give them a chance to professionally show their work and open up doors that wouldn't be there otherwise. While we accept films from anyone, we often find ourselves working with student filmmakers to help them showcase their work in not classroom settings and break into a more competitive and professional world. Whether it be a media center, university, high school or even middle school, we work hard to give opportunities to the next generation of filmmakers and help get them feedback and experience that they wouldn't get otherwise.
