Minikino joined S-Express networking in 2003, opening the doors of Indonesia’s short program distribution to neighboring countries in the Southeast Asia region. Having been a regular part of the Minikino Monthly Screening and Discussion for several years, in 2015 the S-Express screening become part of the annual film festival, Minikino Film Week.

Until now, S-Express is still the only channel for the exchange of short film programs that connects these countries in Southeast Asia. For each country involved, the annual S-Express projects have different meanings, and is furthermore an important part of the history of the short films development in Southeast Asia.

This year is the 18th year since S-Express was first initiated and still the most important movement for the production of short films in Southeast Asia, with an astounding network to be noted.
