Short Film Festival
G-Short is a short film festival held as part of the George Town Festival 2021 to celebrate the endless imagination and possibilities a 90-second short film can bring about. It is set to be held in George Town, Penang in July 2021.

Themed ‘Reimagine: A New Way of Seeing’, with the tagline ‘Short Yet Powerful’, G-Short was conceived to encourage the local and international film communities to create short-form and original films, unleashing their creativity and innovation to tell stories in new ways. It as well serves as an easily accessible platform for the up-and-coming filmmaking talents to get noticed and to refine their styles.

We believe that good stories come in all lengths. You might find one best told in 90 seconds, and a moment that speaks to your heart shall be shared with the world. No matter if you are a filmmaker, film lover, or layperson, you are welcomed to step up to ‘film’ your thoughts, conveying short yet impactful, strong messages to the audiences in 90 seconds. A host of director talks, workshops, and public screenings will be held alongside the film festival. Stay tuned!
