The Short Shorts Film Festival & Asia is accredited by the Academy Awards and is one of the largest international short film festivals in Asia, according to the official website of the event.
The program aims “to introduce people with various backgrounds and share their lives and emotions to spread the importance of giving a hand to people around you, and realize how wonderful and grateful we are to live in peace,” the website of the festival reads.
This year’s edition of the SSFF & Asia, which will hold online over the COVID-19 pandemic, is slated for September 16-27.
