Short Short Film Festival & Asia 2007
This event has ended.
Short films are one of the most exciting and dynamic components of the film world! Recognized worldwide for their artistic and creative merit, short films are effectively used by young filmmakers throughout the Americas and Europe to launch careers. Though still finding their market and niche in Japan and Asia, the future looks bright for short films. In 1999 the Short Shorts Film Festival (formerly known as the American Short Shorts Film Festival) was established in Harajuku, Tokyo in order to introduce Japanese audiences to the world of short films, and has taken 7 national tours with more than 140,000 audience members. In addition to these national tours, the Short Shorts Film Festival (SSFF) has also taken place in LA, Singapore and Myanmar, and has established itself as a unique, Japanese-born film festival showcased worldwide.
In 2004, SSFF received a request from the Governor of Tokyo, Shintaro Ishihara, to develop film programs showcasing only Asian short films. Thus, the "Short Shorts Film Festival Asia" was born. Film markets in Asian countries have been developing rapidly and are producing many great short films in various genres. Considering the successful growth in Asia's film industries, SSFFA has anchored itself as a unique exhibition of Asian short films and as a facilitator for cultural and artistic exchange between Japan and Asian countries.
