Ford Motor has teamed up with five emerging filmmakers from around the world to create a series of short films that celebrate the theme of Small but Mighty. Inspired by Ford’s EcoBoost engines, the shorts showcase small acts and ideas that pack a mighty punch.
From a man with incredibly strong superhero-like arms, to a young boy who dominates the soccer field; from a super granny, to a couple who are inspired by little moments that shape the world – the short films explore a variety of subjects, but at their core is Ford's message of Small but Mighty.
Filmmakers took up the challenge to craft short films that capture the spirit of what the engine range is all about, and demonstrate a moment in life, a person or an idea that is small but mighty. To see the filmmakers’ take on what they believe to be small but mighty, watch all five films below.
A pint-sized football champ proves that size doesn’t matter in Soccer Prodigy. The director Jude Chun cast a talented 8 year-old with incredible ball-handling skills. The young boy’s impressive moves on the pitch steal the show in this comic book-style short.

Andy Kelemen – an award winning filmmaker – produced Small but Mighty Arms. In the style of a mockumentary, the film’s comedic narrative revolves around the life of a slim man who at first struggles but then finds amazing use of his incredibly strong arms.
