Review Library

The MiShorts team have trawled the net to create this toolbox of links to shorts-related websites. It is intended for filmmakers of all experience levels and this list is only the beginning, so suggestions for additional websites and/or categories, no matter how left-field, are welcome.



In this section you can watch our home-grown short film VODcasts produced by students of the National Film & TV School. Featuring interviews with top indie directors and clips from their films, they can be viewed online right now or downloaded for free to watch later. There are also links to other UK and international vodcast sites.


The internet is full of podcasts and most aren't worth the effort, so the MiShorts team have gone in search of the 'casts you want to hear and uncovered some gems in the process. Top of the list is our recommended short film podcast, Director's Notes, produced in the UK by ex-Shooting People editor, Marvin 'Marbelle' Belle.
