With festivals in 14 countries, there is no stopping the SHORT+SWEET mania. Malaysia is no exception as the festival continues to grow here.
We kick off in KL on 6 September with S+S Film, followed by S+S Stand-Up Comedy+Song, Musical, Junior Dance (category for dancers 16 and below), Dance and finish off with Theatre ending on 3 November. It then moves on to Penang from 6 to 16 November for Dance and Theatre.
What makes the festival so popular is its unique format. It only premieres new works that are 10 minutes or less. Not only will you be the first to watch these new creations but, in a single night, you get to watch 10 to 12 different works.
SHORT+SWEET also runs as a competition. The performers compete for a place in the Gala Finals where the winners will win prizes including the coveted Mercedes-Benz Award for Creative Excellence.
Root for your favourite team or, better yet, vote for them and they stand a chance to win the Audience Choice Award.
Come, celebrate us and get swept up in this SHORT+SWEET mania. Like a good Malaysian buffet, there is something for everyone.
