Home to the world's boldest & most innovative creative shorts

Hi there. You’re on the internet, so first of all, congrats.

The internet, if you remember, used to be quite good before getting really overwhelming and difficult to filter through the big black hole of content, making schmucks of us all.

So we decided to make a thing on the internet that wasn’t just commentary, gifs, Vines of people shouting, think-pieces about what makes a great piece of video art… Instead, we decided to create a space where artists can actually just create, using the TV as a canvas. So we made this website, which you are now on, called Random Acts.

Unlike the rest of the internet though, nothing about it is random.

We only show you the best in original short form creative content. We showcase all the films that we commission throughout the year, and also share films that we didn’t commission but wish we had. We handpick the best artists from around the country and beyond, presenting you with short films that display bold expressions of creativity, films that are pushing boundaries, provoking thought and debate, playing with your minds and making you ponder your existence.

We spend a lot of time finding people who are breaking ground in the medium of film and work with them to make the sorts of videos you have never seen before.

Watch out for the Random Acts TV show on Channel 4, bringing you the best from the strand and highlighting them in an original compilation TV programme.

Catch up on the show here. Find out more about how to submit an idea here.
