Common Questions


When to Submit

We recommend submitting your film as soon as your film is complete. It’s important to have an online presence for your film where interested fans and industry members can reach you.

Having your film approved will not automatically make it public. You always have full control over your film release.

In Shortverse, you have full control over the release of your film. You can submit your film now and release it months from now. You don’t have to wait to hear back from other festivals or finish screenings to start planning your release. Give yourself the time and submit early.

Some filmmakers even prefer to publish their film projects before completed to tease upcoming projects. Many programmers, producers, and other industry members are interested in seeing your latest project.

We'll help you turn your release into a new opportunity, with excited industry all over the site, they're waiting to see your next great short.

What you’ll need to submit
