    What is a feature film? [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/eek.gif[/img] [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/blink.gif[/img] ,stay with me on this,reading my umpteenth Biog (Frankie Howard this time)Frankies first film was the forgettable The Runaway Bus .The completed film was 72 minutes long ,however this could not be released as a feature film as it was not reaching the acceptable "feature length" .The film had a scene added and the film was released.

    How long or short is the classification for a film to be a short or feature film,anyone know?

    The British Film Institute Distribution Dept regard films of 60 minutes and longer as feature films and those under 60 minutes as shorts and charge accordingly

    Some second features clock in around 60 minutes (eg Cover Girl Killer) so I've normally viewed a short as 45 minutes and under.
