Short + Sweet Film Festival

24 July 2017 - 28 July 2017

The Short+Sweet theatre festival has been around for 16 years and staged some 5000 or so ten minute plays. It is only natural they are now branching into the world of film and with so many great stories to draw upon, the possibilities are endless.

Following on from the legacy and tradition of its parent theatre festival, the Short+Sweet Film Festival is dedicated to promoting local talent and showcasing it to the world. As well as encouraging filmmakers to enter, they want theatremakers and playwrights who have previously entered Short+Sweet plays to adapt them into screenplays and enter for a chance to win the Best Adaptation Prize. 

Launching online in 2016 and then in Sydney in early 2017 and Hollywood mid 2017, plus many more cities to come. The winning films will be screened in Los Angeles at the Short+Sweet Hollywood Film Festival International Grand Finals in late 2017 with many other awesome prizes up for grabs.
