What is discover.film?
discover.film was started by filmmakers with a passion for short films. The company’s aim is to give short film a mainstream platform and to create new distribution opportunities.
Making it happen.
We started by creating a high-end app, that’s fully curated and only shows only the best short films from around the world. With over 1,000 award-winning films from emerging talent along-side established names there’s always something to fresh and entertaining to suit every taste. The app can be accessed on all devices including mobiles, laptops and TV and is now available on over 100 million+ Huawei handsets so with viewers in almost every country our reach is truly global.
Why have your film on our app?
- We only accept the very best films from around the world onto our platform and it serves as our ‘shop window’ for distribution where clients can pick films straight from the App. Companies can have fun creating their own exclusive film packages, unique and tailor-made to fit their own audiences. With distribution clients, agents and film professionals continually looking at the App it provides great opportunity for all films.
- We are proud that our films can now be enjoyed on most major airlines, on trains and buses, on VOD platforms and TV channels around the world.
- Only films on the App are eligible for our ‘Best Content’ award. Judged by over 70 top industry professionals including commissioners, producers, directors, investors, distributors and creatives, the award has a $1,000 cash prize.
- Twice yearly we hold one of the biggest short film festivals in the world, with dozens of West End cinema screenings, parties, networking events and a fabulous red carpet awards ceremony where we give away the largest cash prize fund in the world. We offer all our App and distribution filmmakers complimentary VIP passes to the festival and it’s always an absolute pleasure to finally put faces to so many familiar voices. The festivals are also a great opportunity for filmmakers to meet and network with each other, other industry professionals, our sponsorship partners and investors and we are delighted to have had so many exciting collaborations as a result.
- Best of all, it’s completely free to add your film to the site and when it comes to distribution it’s a simple 50/50 profit split and you can’t say fairer than that!
So when you sign up to discover.film you join a family – a family that’s here to help. We give back to the film making community by visiting universities, film schools and independent groups to provide students with a better understanding of what is required for distribution and to help with festival success and we are always on hand to give advice. We have an intern programme that offers an exciting opportunity to get involved and we are delighted that today almost half our employees initially joined us via this route.
We are growing fast and we want you to grow with us.
If you’ve been invited to join the platform congratulations and welcome. If you have any questions please contact us. Also, if you are an agent, library, film school or a film maker that wants us to consider your film/s for the site please contact us.
So now relax and check out our various apps.
