Short Film
A SHORT FILM is any motion picture not long enough to be considered a feature film . The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences
Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences
defines a short film as "an original motion picture that has a running time of 40 minutes or less, including all credits". The term featurette originally applied to a film longer than a short subject, but shorter than a standard feature film . The increasingly rare term "short subject" means approximately the same thing. It is an industry term which carries more of an assumption that the film is shown as part of a presentation along with a feature film. "SHORT" is an abbreviation for either term. Short films are often screened at local, national, or international film festivals and made by independent filmmakers for non profit , either with a low budget or no budget at all. They are usually funded by film grants, non profit organizations, sponsor , or personal funds
