Topics covered (based her best selling book How Not to Make a Short Film: Secret From a Sundance Programmer):

  • How to properly structure your script
  • How to produce, cast and accomplish successful post production of your film
  • How and where to submit to film festivals (and where not to submit)
  • And a guide to the wide, wide world of Short Film Distribution


Award-Winning filmmaker, professional speaker and author Roberta Marie Munroe will be sharing her in depth knowledge with filmmakers on how to make and market short films that will guarantee success.

Short films have been enjoying the spotlight and launching the careers of filmmakers on a global scale at their own film festivals such as the Toronto World Wide Shorts Festival and the Palm Springs ShortsFest. Now many high level festivals (Cannes Short Film Corner) have added a significant segment of their festivals to showcase short films.

Hulu, the YouTube Screening Room, and Babelgum, just to name a few, are websites that are offering short filmmakers an immense platform, providing audiences in the millions. And some of these filmmakers are actually being paid handsomely for their work!

“Making a short can be a very daunting and difficult task. However, it can also be fun, inspiring and the perfect launching pad for artists looking to make feature films. My workshops help filmmakers understand what elements must be in place to make their short a viable project.” – Roberta Munroe.

From the foreword, Tom Quinn, Magnolia Pictures
