If you are selected as a Director for the festival, you will get to pick from the top scripts from Dubai based and international writers which we receive this year and a line-up of amazing actors. You will have the opportunity to direct a 10-minute performance during the Top 40 or the Wildcards and, if selected, participate in the Red Carpet Gala Final! 


Short+Sweet Dubai stages around 80 plays, each put in the hands of capable UAE based directors. Open to both the experienced and fresh blood, Short+Sweet gives hundreds of artists an opportunity to write, perform, develop, and direct, while encouraging audiences to see some brand new works on stage.

S+S Dubai is separated into two divisions:Top 40 and the Wildcards.

Around 200 scripts are shortlisted from the thousands received year-round by Short+Sweet and are selected by directors. Those selected are performed and assessed by judges and the audience to determine the best of the best to win a spot in the Red Carpet Gala Final.
