The Technology's Included:
Short films are meant to be less than 40 minutes long and are usually created from a low budget depending on the aim of the short film. They are mostly created by amateur companies to gain more popularity and money for them to cream more films or by professionals to promote a short of the movie that they want to create.
Most Short Films are art house movies that are about more than just the entertainment but to leave a meaning, but the most popular is experimenting with the film making. Its also a way of showing the world your skills and talents to the world so that film production company's take notice of them, making it as a portfolio of what they can create. They are shown in art house theaters and some are also shown on the internet through Vemeo, Youtube and many other websites on the internet.
The main point of the reviewing the short film or feature films release was a success and whether or not they will consider making another is that has it made profit. Some company's review the user or critic’s reactions of the film on public websites and magazines. They use this data to their advantage finding out and knowing what their audience wants, so that before they decide to make another film in the same way. It also effects if they are nominated for awards reflecting on political and public voting.

The USA’s Hollywood and the Indian Bollywood have the cutting edge for funding their movies since they gain the profits quickly through the theatres around the world, and also by the constant releases of new blockbusters, regarding that Bollywood films are mostly musicals. Even though they both gain most of their profits back, Hollywood receives the most given money for funding and gross/profit out of all the film industries worldwide.
On the other hand, Nollywood creates most of their gross/profit from DVD sales instead of gaining the money back from theatres. They have much cheaper funding for their movies ranging from $10,000 to $210,000, whereas Hollywood in contrast tends to exceed low budgets with millions being spent. Nollywood also tends to have less dramatic story lines which are more believable, whereas Hollywood is known for their huge action, Si-Fi and Fantesy based movies.

Considering that they are high budget films they have to struggle to get company's to fund them. There most commonly made in shorts and shown in film festivals because of the authentic value that the audience can relate to, rather than being a hardcore action film with fiction everywhere where its completely realistic in domestic films.
