It doesn't matter how short your film is - or whether it plays on a cellphone or in a movie theatre - you cannot use, borrow, or steal other people's music. If you cannot pay to clear or license the music for your short film, check out sources on the Internet for 'free' or cleared music. If you do not clear your music, you will not be able to sell your film to third parties like broadcasters or even screen it at many festivals. So, what's the point?
