Konvensyen Filem Kontot l Short Films Convention

Kontot official website

A place for film friends and fans!

Feast your mind and senses on the humble, yet remarkably passionate works of local and foreign young (and the more mature) 'kaki lima' filmmakers. There'll be back-to-back short films screenings, film discussions, awards for the chosen hot shorts and just plain chill out time, as we appreciate and celebrate the power of cinematic influence. So put on your best 'kaki lima' attire, (bringing comfy pillows with you is optional) and come hang out with us because after all, life's too short to not take a shot of short films!
