Shnit is an international short film festival that will be taking place from the 2nd to the 6th of October 2013 in Cape Town. This event captivates audiences every year to present creations of domestic talents, questioning our own cultural identities as well as enjoying familiar stereotypes. Shnit is a fusion of culture and social events.
“This year’s edition presents a feast of cinematic treats for all distinguished taste- mild and hearty, sweet and adventurous, crispy, juicy, home grown, flavour or exotic delights. More than 200 films around the world can be enjoyed on this momentous occasion of the 11th edition.”
You’ve seen the scenario before some talented young filmmakers from over 140 countries are selected from over 6700 entries and only 200 plus were chosen to be showcased in the SISF. This year Shnit did everything with a bit of twist and started a Shnit OPEN International Competition which 64 films compete for four international jury and audience awards.
