It all depends on how heavy the aircraft is, what the temperature is and what the airport altitude is. As for the A/C with the shortest length, the Dash 7 would have to be right up there with it's STOL capabilities. The Hercules military transport with JATO would definately be there for short takeoffs but that's an oddball case.

The L-1011 could take off fully loaded in 8,070 feet. The others in its class at the time, the DC-10 and 747, needed 10,370 feet and 10,450 feet, respectively.

The shortest field length for any large jet is the C-17's 3000 or so feet. The C-17 is a USAF transport of approximate weight of the DC-10.

I flew from Long Beach to Phoenix on an A319 with only 3 pax on board. We had a 10 knot headwind which made that plane lift off in approimately 1500 feet! By far it was the shortest I've ever seen.
