The Renderyard Short Film Festival attracts new talent all over the world giving independent filmmakers and animators the opportunity to showcase their work and celebrate their creativity and skill, using the latest equipment, video editing and 3D animation technologies. This year’s festival programme includes screenings of selected short films, documentaries, music videos and animations, spotlights on scripts and soundtracks, with special collaborations from Madrid en Corto, 14th Promotion, ECAM, and Rushes Soho Shorts UK.
Smart TV technology gives filmmakers a platform for screening submissions that is more secure than online platforms and offers better viewing quality. They are much keener on showcasing their films on high-end devices since films are designed to be enjoyed on large screens.
