A short film, like a poem or short story, is a self-contained work with its own literary merit. A well-programmed selection of short films is a potent stimulant for discussion, which in turn will promote social awareness and critical thinking. Furthermore, we believe that culture can only exist and develop with exchange, not isolation.
