The Short+Sweet Film Festival Sydney is back! Showcasing the best local and international short films.
No limits, other than your imagination.
Short+Sweet Founder Mark Cleary and Festival Director Greg Dolgopolov, have committed to delivering “a world class festival with an A-List Hollywood finale”.
According to Short+Sweet Sydney-based Film Festival director, Dr Greg Dolgopolov, the most important aspect of Short+Sweet is to bring local filmmakers together and in direct contact with their audiences. Since directing Melbourne’s first Short+Sweet Film festival in 2017 Greg noted the passionate discussions that continued between filmmakers, judges and audience members after each screening. “The shaping of networks for future projects… That connection is what Short+Sweet is so good at fostering.”
Heats start on 7 and 8th of August, 2021 with film screenings beginning at 7:00pm at the wonderfully refurbished Tom Mann Theatre in the heart of Sydney.
The Short+Sweet Film Festival is unique for three distinct reasons:
1) For just one entry you are in consideration for our 10 international festivals, opening up your chances to have your screen filmed around the world throughout 2019.
2) We have a very strong international network and this network is constantly expanding.
3) We are unique in that we have a very strong connection to theatre. We do not believe the gap between theatre and film should be soooo wide and we aim to bridge this gap. With our Best Adaptation Award and our close partnership with our sister theatre festival, we encourage theatre and film practitioners to be one and the same.
4) We screen all sorts of films and all sorts of genres and support all sorts of filmmakers from seasoned pros to emerging artists
