What is a short film?


Retailers consider a short film to be less than 45 minutes in length. Currently, Quiver can deliver short films to the following retailers:

  • Amazon
  • Comcast Xfinity (after pitch process)
  • DirecTV (after pitch process)
  • Google Play
  • iTunes

In Step 1 of the order creation process, Quiver auto-selects either a feature film or short film based on the runtime entered.


Unlike feature films, short films can only be sold for a certain price on storefronts that accept short film content. This price has been pre-determined by each retailer that accepts short film content and is the same for all short films on their storefront. Since Quiver cannot update or amend the short film price set by these retailers, we have removed this functionality from the Quiver platform for short film content.

The prices section of Title Metadata will only appear for feature films. 

For more information about what retail prices to expect for your short film, please contact Quiver support.
