In 2011, 17 Films switched gears and began only producing creative media through short films, music videos, and individual marketing pieces. Next up, feature films.
With the success of its short film “Beside Her”, which was accepted into 17 film festivals (Including The Soho International Film Festival and The Palm Springs International Short Film Festival), and played overseas in France and Italy, 17 Films recently completed its next short film “Revelation”.
