BookShorts represents an extensive library of book-oriented
film and video.
Having an extensive library of titles has enabled us to
develop a distribution network with traditional and new
media broadcasters that is otherwise not available to those
with single titles.
We use this network in addition to publicly accessible
UGC outlets to deliver quantifiable audiences to our clients.
The service can be especially helpful to small presses
and self-published authors.
Visit the Publishers FAQ for a list of current outlets,
or contact us directly - its growing all the time!

BookShorts is committed to supporting literacy in all its
forms. To that end, the not-for-profit company is developing
entertainment programming targeted to new and young readers,
primarly through the medium of the Internet and online social
netorking. More news on these initiatives will be posted
in early 2007.
A limited number of videos are produced by BookShorts Literacy
Program in service to not-for-profit organizations which
support art and artists.

ORIGINAL SHORT FILM PROGRAM
We continue to produce high production value short films
in the style of project like JPod, ICE,
The Fighter and What Casanova Told Me.
Films such as these in the BookShorts catalogue are being
screened in film festivals in Canada and the United States,
and form the basis of our programming for television series
on national broadcast channels.
The Short Film Program requires a minimum six to eight
months pre-production lead time in order to assemble creative
teams, script adaptations, and financing.
