We tell it short.
Why short films?
It’s one simple medium that can reach general media and grab enough attention. We are living in the age where video cameras can be found everywhere, whereas short footages can also be watched anywhere.
Knowing this, short film is the best way for us to gather attention to the right issues, as we have the chance to gain not only enough makers, but also the abundant audience.
Bandung Short is powered by Artsociates Indonesia, a non profit organization established in 2007, with the mission to support and promote Indonesian Art and Culture. Some of the artists who are currently working with Artsociates are: Eddy Susanto, Tisna Sanjaya, Mujahidin Nurrahman, Patriot Mukmin, Erwin Windu Pranata, and others.
Also the initiator Bandung Contemporary Art (BaCAA), Artsociates aims to reach more specific audience and participants through Bandung Short. The festival is yet another way to develop Indonesian art scene in term of its makers as well as appreciators.
