Cinedigm Follows Tik Tok Craze with Launch of New Channel Dedicated to Shorts





Cinedigm announced its new partnership with AudPop to launch a channel dedicated entirely to short-form videos. The “Shorts Channel” will launch on the heels of successful short-form video platforms like Tik Tok, and will feature 1,000 hours of content from 12,000 films from around the world. The free, ad-supported OTT channel will be available in North America, with plans to expand into more territories in the future.

“AudPop has established itself as a leading curator of short films from around the world,” said Tony Huidor, General Manager of Cinedigm Networks. “We are excited to showcase the high-quality films created by emerging, talented filmmakers by sharing more than 12,000 short films with viewers across our expanding list of distribution partners.” 

The channel will feature programming with genres and subject matters from comedy, animation/anime, horror & Sci-Fi, LGBTQ, romantic comedies, documentary, made-by-women, African American, social justice, inspirational as well as faith & spirituality.

“As the success of Tik Tok, Facebook Watch and HBOMax have shown, short-form entertainment content captures billions of minutes consumed each month,” said Erick Opeka, President of Digital Networks, Cinedigm.  “Our partnership with AudPop will bring 12,000 titles of the world’s highest quality short-form films to market at a time that Telcos, TV & handset manufacturers, and others demand compelling, original shorts to entertain and retain their customers.”  

“At AudPop we believe that real stories can change the world, which is why we are so excited to partner with Cinedigm to bring our diverse and talented filmmakers stories to audiences everywhere,”  said AudPop Founder & CEO, Paige Williams.
