From Page to Screen and Everything in Between. The Short+Sweet Film Festival is finally here. It is unique in the ever expanding world of Short+Sweet (currently encompassing festivals and events in nine countries and 25 cities, and growing all the time) in that it’s the only 'non-live’ festival we present. In the 16 years since Short+Sweet was first established in Sydney we’ve presented over 5,000 new works in theatre, music and dance created by over 3,000 writers. Most of these are in the form of short plays but original stories can be told in many ways and so music and dance have become important elements of the story-telling. With so many great stories to draw upon the move to Film was only natural and perfectly coincides with the launch of the first ever Short+Sweet program in the US - Short+Sweet Hollywood (September 2016 at the Stella Adler Theatre on Hollywood Blvd).
Whether you have a play that you want to adapt into a screenplay or an original idea for a film, Short+Sweet Film Festival is now calling for entries for our inaugural year, launching online in 2016 and Sydney & Hollywood in 2017. In keeping with the Short+Sweet tradition, all films must be 10 minutes or less and can be shot and edited on any device. There are no more limits other than your imagination. The winning film will be screened in Los Angeles at the Short+Sweet Hollywood Film Festival in September 2017 and there are many other awesome prizes up for grabs.
