Malaysia’s longest-running short film festival Mini Film Festival steps into its 18th edition this year with a variety of online and offline film screenings, discussions, and exhibitions running from July 14 to 17.
Conducted in collaboration with international partners ranging from regional film festivals and media partners to non-profit organisations, cultural bodies, and government agencies, the Mini Film Festival aims to provide well-curated, film-related events to inculcate the love for film arts.
With the theme “Revival”, this year’s festival also features other art forms to celebrate the resurgence of the creative industry which had been upended by the COVID-19 pandemic. Curated art exhibitions, art markets, live music performances, workshops, and talks with artists will be conducted concurrently with the film festival in a hybrid format.
The online version of the festival will feature two free events:
- A film screening of 18 nominated films selected from more than 150 submissions. The online screening will be hosted on Cinemata for the duration of the festival. Register here for the online film pass.
- Online art exhibition showcasing 18 artworks created by artists across Sarawak, Malaysia. Read about the artists here.
