It's been absolutely amazing going through all of these films and seeing just how much heart and soul people put into them. As a thank you for everyone's efforts, we wanted to provide some constructive feedback so that everyone can come away with a different perspective on their storytelling. We encourage everyone, participants and newcomers, to watch the films, view the feedback, and see how it can improve your approach to filmmaking.

Below you'll find the submissions with links to the individual films and PDF feedback forms. We've also posted the feedback individually into each film's comment section in the Big Shorts Vimeo Group.

If you've found this feedback to be valuable, pass the link to this page bit.ly/big-shorts on to others who may benefit from it as well via Twitter @stillmotion
