The Short+Sweet Cebu Festival will be screened in three groupings - Cebuano Films, Filipino Films and International Films, with the winning films as voted by judges and audience to progress to the finals in Manila, and will also be screened in our Film Festivals in Illawarra, Essex and some may even be selected to be screened in Hollywood!
Background to Short+Sweet Founded in 2002 by Mark Cleary, Short+Sweet began as a small festival of 10-minute plays in Sydney, Australia. Since this time, this unique brand has extended to multiple performance mediums; from theatre to dance, cabaret to Bollywood, musicals to stand-up comedy; all maintaining the single rule, being 10 minutes or less. Short+Sweet has made a huge impact on the Australian theatre scene through developing new, original work with emerging artists and providing a platform for established artists to showcase their talents. The expansion of Short+Sweet within Australia has also taken short-form theatre internationally, with ever increasing popularity and ever increasing festivals. Short+Sweet is currently active across the USA, Australia, India, Philippines, Zimbabwe, New Zealand, Malaysia, and the United Arab Emirates, with growth planned for additional cities in these countries, as well as across the UK and Europe.
