Future Shorts is a short film distributor whose partners include broadcasters (Arte/ZDF, Canal+, HBO, SBS Australia and SVT), online channels (YouTube, Babelgum), advertisers (Sony Computer Entertainment, Samsung), airlines (KLM, Qatar) and mobile content aggregators (PlayerX). Future Shorts is the exclusive distributor for “Figure-Ground” for television and all media. Click here for more info on Figure-Ground.

Scott Ligon's award-winning first short film, Escape Velocity, has played in festivals and theaters all over the world. The film is distributed by Shorts International and plays regularly on the Documentary Channel in the U.S. and on Shorts TV in Europe.

Shorts International recently completed another television deal for Escape Velocity. LAPTV is a partnership of four major entertainment giants, 20th Century Fox, MGM, Paramount, and Fox TV (Latin American Channels). They’ve all gotten together to form a massive series of movie channels, described as the best premium movie experience in Latin America. Like Dreamworks in the U.S., LAPTV (Latin American Pay TV) is a cooperative effort among industry giants. Shorts International has signed an exclusive two-year television deal in Latin America with LAPTV for Escape Velocity, and the film will be shown with Spanish subtitles. This deal could result in the largest audience yet for Escape Velocity. Get information on LAPTV, translated into English here, or in the original Español here.

"Escape Velocity" is now available on iTunes. It's only $1.99! Click here to go to the iTunes page or visit our video page for more info.
