Future Shorts Festival

Yesterday we posted about the latest projects from The Secret Cinema team. As well as producing these innovative and immersive cinema experiences, they are also the creators of Future Shorts; the largest short film network in the world. This week they announced the details of their Future Shorts Festival spring programme. Since November 2011, the festival has tripled in size, and is now featured in 55 countries and 150 cities. Filmmakers, screening partners and audiences come together at the events and connect online through a massive social media network, which includes over 180,000 people on Facebook and over 150,000 YouTube subscribers.

A global community of screening partners powers Future Shorts Festival.  Every three months, the HQ in London curates a feature-length programme of some of the best classic, cult and award-winning short films from around the world.  The festival programme is then made available to a global network of screening partners who book, organize and host the festival in their local community. Screening partners pay a fixed fee for the festival programme, which varies according to the intended size of their audience, and then promote the screening, charge for tickets and keep any profits. It is the first film festival to spilt profits from the license fees with the filmmakers.
