My meager attempts at researching the theory of short film have come up
quite short as well (certainly a niche that stills needs to be filled!).
However, the following resources have proven somewhat valuable to me, if a
bit scant on a fully developed theory.
Undercurrent/FIPRESCI issue devoted to short film:
Cantell, Saara, "Poetry on screen or visualized jokes? An approach to the
genres of short fiction films," p.o.v #18, 2004
Raskin, Richard, The art of the short fiction film : a shot by shot study of
nine modern classics, Jefferson, N.C. : McFarland, 2002.**
Hope these are helpful.
