Frequently Asked Questions

Do you produce films?

No -- we broadcast with permission from the rights holder. We credit filmmakers in the description below each film. Check them out for more of their work.

Are you monetizing off filmmakers?

No -- we don't run ads on films. Occassionally, you'll see ads due to copyright claims by third-parties. Sometimes, a filmmaker uses unlicensed music and the music rights holder adds a copyright claim, meaning ads show on the film with the revenue going to them -- not us. The record label gets paid, the filmmaker gets to use music they should have paid for, everyone's happy. We post with ads only if the filmmaker is okay with this arrangement.

So then what's the catch?

There's no catch. Most people don't get into filmmaking for the money, they do it for the passion. We're no differnet. We do it because we found it frustranting there wasn't one place for great short films. We thought there was a better way to get films seen -- both by connecting filmmakers to a global audience and film lovers who can't make it to film festivals. We're not an agent or a distributor or a middle man. We don't try to sign away your rights. We're a small operation that's just focused getting great films seen by millions. And so far, we're doing it. We'll figure out the rest later.


Our Story

We started Omeleto to solve a problem. Filmmakers spend a lot of time and money trying to make a film, then spend just as much trying to get it seen. Film festival can get costly -- registration fees add up, not to mention the cost of travel and attending. And that's if you get in -- being accepted is often political. Who does your agent know on the selection committee?

Then, after the circuit is done, you throw the film online. But as Sundance Programmer Mike Plante explains, "If you put your short online the good news is many people can watch it. But the real news is that 10 people will watch it -- even if you are the hottest thing. There is just so much stuff online. Putting something online just isn't enough."

There had to be a better way.

So we had this idea that short films are the ideal medium in the age of mobile devices. And that "mobile cinema" is going to be the next big thing. Consumers -- with ever-shortening attention spans -- can't watch a 90-minute feature on a phone. But they can watch a 12-minute short. Personal, bite-sized and premium -- ideal for a lunch break, train ride or bathroom break.

How often do you watch a film in a theater? Maybe once a week or month? Now, how often do you watch a video online. Probably several times daily.

We want to give independent filmmakers the reach that no festival can offer -- on a world stage for free. Conventional barriers to entry shouldn't stop great films from reaching millions who love them.

If you have a great film and you'd like some help to get seen, feel free to get in touch with us. If there's a talented filmmaker you think would benefit from us, please pass us along. Thanks.
