The main purposes of SFS are:

  • To stimulate ongoing research on individual short films as a basis for a better understanding of the art form 
  • To provide a flow of cutting-edge teaching materials that can be used in courses in which short films are either studied or produced, at film schools or universities
  • To offer fresh inspiration to filmmakers and other professionals working with short films in connection with festivals, national film institutes, regional film centres, etc.

While the principal focus is on the short fiction film, other classic forms – such as the short documentary, the short experimental film and the short animation film – are also covered from time to time.

In each issue, two productions are singled out for comprehensive presentation and close study. For each film, the reader will find production data, an interview with the director, a shot-by-shot breakdown of the film with a still illustrating every shot, a number of peer-reviewed articles that illuminate the film from a variety of perspectives and a link enabling subscribers to view the film.

One of the unique features of this journal is that it provides a link to each of the films singled out for close study.
