Download for Life
MiShorts is a ‘boutique’ Video-on-Demand service created by the people behind Final Cut, one of the UK's longest–running independent short film exhibitors. Our aim is to bring you the world's best short film download service and help promote the work of indie filmmakers everywhere. Once you become a MiShorts member, you can watch all of our films online and download most of them in seven different formats, including DVD, for viewing on all commercially available viewers, from HD TVs to the latest mobile phones.
Our online library contains almost 1,000 quality titles sourced from all over the world and is updated regularly to ensure you always have plenty of new films to choose from. A powerful search engine enables rapid and accurate searches, making the process of choosing and viewing both easy and fun, and our powerful servers enable you to download your selections rapidly at up-to HD quality.
A commission of 50% of the advertised price of a film is paid to the film’s owner/licensee every time it is purchased. Payments are made via the PayPal system with real-time data on downloads and earnings per film displayed in your secure ‘MiProfile’ area.
Every MiShorts member is automatically given a personal MiProfile area after joining that can be used to communicate with other members, provide personal information, track purchases, reviews, etc. These profiles are listed in the ‘Filmfan’ directory. Members with films in our library are given an upgraded profile area, enabling them to also write a personal blog and add/edit information about themselves and their work. These profiles are listed in the ‘Filmmaker’ directory.
