The 9th BRANDED SHORTS- Now Open for Submissions
HR Competition supported by Indeed
continuously look for short films
from the perspective of Human Resources
Beginning Tuesday, August 1st, BRANDED SHORTS, Japan’s only international branded movie competition, will begin accepting submissions for the 2024 Short Shorts Film Festival & Asia, one of Asia’s biggest international short film festivals and accredited by the Academy Awards.
BRANDED SHORTS, established by the festival in 2016, is a new type of communication by companies and organizations that transcends the boundaries of “advertising” and aims to communicate their social values (services, products, and experiences) to consumers, as a form of “cinematic communication.” The festival defines Branded Movies as films that are selected and have eight perspectives; inevitability, ability to change perceptions, ability to share, message power, viewership retention, originality, timelessness, and post-viewing retention.
During the submission period, we will announce a short list that will lead to the final nomination. We will gather jurors from various industries in advertising and film for the 2024 film festival, and the best Branded Movie selection will be awarded the “Branded Shorts of the Year
The HR category supported by Indeed, established in 2022, keep calling out for Branded Movies from the perspective of human resources, and recruitment.
