The Importance of Small Streaming Platforms for Indie Content

The advent of streaming has revolutionized the way we consume entertainment. With over-the-top (OTT) services such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Disney+, viewers now have access to a plethora of mainstream content at their fingertips. However, amid the proliferation of these giant streaming platforms, the importance of small streaming platforms that feature indie content cannot be overlooked. Read more on JARO Magazine.

ACCESS TO A GLOBAL AUDIENCE

JARO’s online streaming platform has the capability to reach millions of viewers across the world, giving independent filmmakers a vast potential audience.

WHAT WE LOOK FOR

The ideal short films encompass any genre and primarily focus on contemporary themes that can resonate with multiple generations. A preference is given to films that are less than 10 years old, and those showcasing the potential to become timeless classics, offering lasting appeal and relevance in the ever-evolving world of cinema.

WHAT WE AVOID

In our commitment to promoting a positive and inclusive atmosphere, we consciously steer clear of any content that may perpetuate harm or marginalization. Specifically, we avoid showing material containing pornography, blatant racist rhetoric, anti-LGBTQ+ themes, antisemitic elements, or any content that glorifies violence.

SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS

To submit your film, adhere to the following requirements: the film must be under 40 minutes in duration, all rights including music, must be secured, and the film must be free to view. The submission process is simple – please submit your film either via the JARO platform or through FilmFreeway. Kindly note that the response time for reviewing submissions may take up to six week from the date of submission, allowing for thorough evaluation to ensure that films meet our guidelines and criteria.

REFUND POLICY

Please be aware that submission fees are non-refundable, so it is crucial to ensure that your film meets the established criteria prior to submitting. Keep in mind that there is no guarantee of acceptance into the Shorts Screening Room upon submitting your film. Due to the overwhelming number of annual submissions, we can only select 60% of the films for inclusion in our program, making the selection process highly competitive and exclusive.
