Netflix comes out swinging with “The Short Game”

Netflix will launch The Short Game on Thursday, December 12th at 12:01 AM PT.  The documentary, which will be the first original documentary available on the service, follows eight of the most competitive golfers around the globe, all who happen to be under the ripe age of seven years old, as they train for and compete in the World Championship of Junior Golf.

The Netflix original documentary will be available to stream in all territories where Netflix is available – U.S., Canada, the UK, Ireland, Latin America, the Nordics and the Netherlands.

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.”
