About the Festival

For a second year, TheWrap introduces a new kind of shorts festival bringing together 12 award-winning shorts showcasing the best of the best from this year’s top international festivals.

The films stream online and over mobile from August 19 – 29, 2013.

Our programming team chose 12 finalists that will be announced on August 19, when all the films will be available for viewing and voting by our online audience.

The 12 finalists compete for an Industry Award, voted on by our esteemed jury of industry experts (below), along with an additional Audience Award, which goes to the final entry with the most online votes.

Last year more than 11,000 viewers watched and voted on the ShortList finalists. The winning films this year will get a first-look deal, be aired on an MTV network and win a package of camera equipment for their next feature or short.
