Emmy® award-winning director Josh Greenbaum's feature debut premiered at South by Southwest (SXSW) and won the 2013 Audience Award.  It was Academy qualified in a limited theatrical release through Phase 4 Films and Samuel Goldwyn Films.

"'The Short Game' provides a highly entertaining, family friendly and joyful vantage into a unique world that most people fantasize about: being the best in the world at something.  The fact that this dream is pursued by children playing a grownups' game is intriguing and inspiring," says Lisa Nishimura, Netflix VP of Original Documentary and Comedy.  "We seek to provide the very best storytelling within the documentary filmmaking category and 'The Short Game' is the rare example of a beautifully told and heart-warming tale which appeals to all generations."

"As a filmmaker, you hope your work will reach as many people as possible and that's what's so exciting about partnering with Netflix, who are presenting some of the most original and cutting edge programming on the planet right now," said director Josh Greenbaum.  "The idea of people all across the world being able to watch the film is a dream come true."

"The Short Game" is produced by Rafael Marmor, Christopher Leggett, and Josh Greenbaum, and executive produced by Jessica Biel, Justin Timberlake, Timm Oberwelland, John Battsek and David Frankel.
