Why the mobile movie market is growing

The world of tv & film is changing.

  • With viewers, attention spans are getting shorter.
  • The roll out of 5G globally means that watching movies on mobile is increasing.
  • With short film producers, budgets are increasing and technology is improving rapidly.
  • The wider tv market is fragmenting with huge growth in direct to consumer OTT (over-the-top) delivery.
  • Brands are increasing getting involved with short form content as an innovative way of connecting with an audience.

However, with all this change supply isn’t meeting demand. One issue is that viewers can’t find the very best short movies as the sources are fragmented. Another issue is that content creators aren’t aware of which video on demand platforms will license their films. In addition, the platforms aren’t aware of the best short films.

Discover.film is fixing these problems.
