reviews and feedback will help you to get idea an where you are good and where we need to improve
your shortfilm making skillset. Shortfundly strongly believes most of us require those reviews and
feedback of your creative shortfilm.
YouTube, vimeo etc. are great platforms providing online video streaming services. However, they are
not designed for short film and short film makers. If you want to see a short film in some particular
category, you are required to do extensive search to find the short film. So, we thought to build a new
platform to help users quickly view and share short films without searching much.
