With social media becoming the dominant mode of communication, information and entertainment in our culture, short form content has never been more in demand. The numbers show people are interested in paying for it. According to Cultural Weekly, "the total estimated financial investment in features submitted to Sundance in 2015 tops $4.65 billion - $3.93 billion invested in dramatic features and $718 million in documentaries." Even in traditional exhibition methods like movie theaters, yearly grosses for screenings of Oscar-nominated short films go up considerably year-to-year. Then why does the current film market make it so difficult for consumers to see award-winning short films at a simple cost they can afford? That’s where Miniflix TV (downloaded 5,000 times during the first quarter after its fall 2017 release, now sitting at 2,600 unique monthly users) steps in.

"There are so few dedicated online opportunities short films so this is a great way to get work out there.”
