It's a really important question, particularly when you start to work on a project intended to be a short and then you realize you have a lot more to say. A professor of mine said a short film is a sketch or blueprint whereas a feature is the more complete product. Dunno if that's fitting but I enjoyed this post:) Thanks!

Thanks. I think short films are an analogy more to short stories, because there are some fully formed stories in the short form, but it's so subjective.

Definitely. If I ever struggle with writing a short screenplay I write it as a short story first to figure out the plot:)
