Short films have been trending over the past few years. Audiences have become familiar with short films thanks to the Pixar shorts released before Pixar feature films. Short films can be seen in all genres. That's why we offer a variety of subcategories. All of the short films that are entered into the Short Film Competition will be considered for release on Prime Video. All semi-finalists will be screened at the South Shore Film Fest Short Film Screening on July 27, 2019. All finalists will have their short film released on Amazon Prime Video Direct, should they be accepted by the platform and provide all required deliverables for release.
