From October 7-18, cinephiles can enjoy the fruits of the transnational shnit Short Film Festival. The festival simultaneously takes place in multiple cities on five continents. Bangkok, for its part, is considered a shnit “PLAYGROUND,” and so it metes out national jury and audience awards to top short films. Over 12 days, thousands of shorts will screen across the world, representing over 100 nations, and the best of the best will be in contention to earn over 100 thousand US dollars in cash prizes. Participating venues have not yet been named; in previous years, House RCA and the Friese-Greene Club, among others, have joined the fun. For more information, visit www.shnit.foundation.
