Short film

A short film is any motion picture not long enough to be considered a feature film. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences defines a short film as "an original motion picture that has a running time of 40 minutes or less, including all credits". The term featurette originally applied to a film longer than a short subject, but shorter than a standard feature film.

I normally don't really enjoy short films, but this one by Michael Lukk Litwak is a must-see! It has won awards for a reason!

It's actually a pretty good film, even though it's about skateboarding.

One of the best animated shorts I've seen....and Pixar, as a company, wasn't even involved.

The Door, by Ava DuVernay, the fifth Miu Miu Women's Tale, is a celebration of the transformative power of feminine bonds, and a symbolic story of life change.

Check out this short film "Tiger," which follows the love story of 2 models in Japan. It was extremely well-made and I wish more films in cinema had such rich, interesting storylines and characters.

What is Sussle?

Sussle is the first, open visual encyclopedia. Anyone can use it.

What's a visual encylopedia?

It has beautiful images and viral videos that are way more fun than reading all the text in traditional encyclopedias.

5 reasons you should add your own images and videos:

  1. If you found Sussle interesting, then give back by adding something interesting for others.
  2. Help others learn in a fun way.
  3. Make someone else interested in this topic laugh or say wow!
  4. Become internet-famous as people like and share your post.
  5. It's super easy, so it won't take more than a minute.
