Short Shorts Film Festival & Asia 2012


Mining the diamond in the rough in the world of short films...

Short films are an established art form, the "first step" to realizing the dreams of young filmmakers around the world. This festival was inaugurated in Tokyo’s Harajuku district in 1999 to introduce this new and exciting form of moving image to Japan. In 2004 the festival was officially accredited by the Academy Awards®, making our festival Grand Prix winner eligible for nomination in the Short Film Category of the Annual Academy Awards®. For 2012, we received more than 5000 entries from all over the world. 80 films have been selected from 37 countries/regions to screen in official competitions.
