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 1 October with S+S Film, followed by S+S Stand-Up Comedy+Song, Musical, Dance and finish off with Theatre ending on 24 October. It then moves on to Penang from 30 October to 7 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 many different works.

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.
