A trip to any film festival will serve as an important reminder of just how much untapped talent there is out there in the short film industry. Just last October New Empress writers were sat cackling through The Legend of Beaver Dam (a horror musical no less!) at the London Film Festival, amongst many other thought-provoking shorts, and who doesn’t look forward to the extra animated short tacked onto the front of Pixar films?
With this in mind it is a bit surprising that cinemas simply don’t bother with short films. At least not frequently. Perhaps this is because the public simply aren’t interested in an appetiser before the main course, but we wanted to find out for sure. So you tell us: should cinemas show short films before their main feature? Cast your vote below!
