Short Film Distribution on the Internet

Up to now, countless short films have been provided for internet portal sites like MSN, excite, GyaO!, and others. Proposed entertainment programming that is perfect for the growing broadband services to eventually be provided for every household in the country are made available.

Along with Microsoft’s MSN, we called out for contents suitable for the internet and established the new “MSN Online Competition.” The best short was awarded the MSN Video Award. Additionally, in 2010, in a new undertaking with film festival sponsor Faith Wonderworks, a year-round call for submissions on this site was set up along with selection announcements for the “Music Short Competition.” People can watch the short film entries at GyaO!
