It’s been a fantastic year for Short Film Fan in 2015. This was the first full year of posted articles for the site. From January to December, Short Film Fan had the pleasure in publishing a wealth of fascinating filmmaker interviews, film reviews and general news items about short films in Canada. It was enjoyable to meet, correspond with and interview so many people directly involved with these films. New colleagues and friends have been made as a result of these articles.
Short Film Fan has also increased its subscriber base from last year! It’s pleasing to know that readers liked the site so much at that they took out full subscriptions so as to not miss out on any future posts. Hope to see you continue your subscriptions and that you’ll encourage your friends and colleagues to subscribe, as well.
As well, Short Film Fan experimented with guest blog posts. It was an excellent opportunity to receive and share perspectives about Canadian short films from others. Katy Swailes was our guest blogger this year and we hope that she’ll return next year with more well-written articles. Short Film Fan encourages other filmmakers, actors, marketers (not to mention other Canadian short film fans) to contribute a guest post to the site.
Short Film Fan also increased its presence on social media this year. In the fall, a Facebook page was launched and, just recently, a Google Plus page has entered into the mix. These pages will act as supplemental places to have conversations about the posts and Canadian shorts, in general.
As for 2016, Short Film Fan will keep bringing you more quality articles along with some experiments thrown in now and then. With the new Google Plus page, Short Film Fan may even try its hand at making and publishing ‘short films’ made via smartphone technology!
A big ‘thank-you’ goes out to everyone who was involved with Short Film Fan this year. There are too many names to be mentioned here. But, to everyone who agreed to be interviewed for articles, contributed guest posts, shared your short for a review, featured the site on your social media pages or simply sent a message in appreciation of what’s been written, THANK YOU VERY MUCH for supporting Short Film Fan!
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and all the best to you and your family in 2016!
