The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the world and selected by National Geographic editors. We look for work that affirms National Geographic's belief in the power of science, exploration, and storytelling to change the world. To submit a film for consideration, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. The filmmakers created the content presented, and the opinions expressed are their own, not those of National Geographic Partners.
