Celebrating Queer Cinema: Short Circuit 7

The Short Circuit Film Festival has been a beacon of creativity and inclusivity since its inception in 2006. Born as an annual one-night-only showcase of queer short films in Singapore, it has inadvertently grown into a prominent fixture in the local film scene. What sets Short Circuit apart is its dedication to documentary storytelling, a unique approach that has captivated audiences and provided a platform for emerging and established artists and filmmakers.
