About the Show

The world’s biggest little festival is back – SHORT+SWEET Malaysia enters its 16th season this year. 
As a key driver for the development of new Malaysian works and talent, SHORT+SWEET Malaysia has premiered over 1,000 new works and showcased an astonishing 5,575 talents since 2008.
As one of Malaysia’s longest-running multi-genre festivals, SHORT+SWEET Malaysia 2023 is set to premiere some 90 new works in six different genres – Film, Stand-Up Comedy, Song, Musical, Theatre and Dance by a wide range of Malaysian artistes and arts groups.

Not only will audiences be the first to view the creation (only new works are accepted), each work must be under 10 minutes. You will get to feast on a sumptuous buffet of 10-minute works and, best yet, vote for your favourite! Each team competes to win top honours and prizes including Creative Excellence Award.

Hosted nightly by Festival Director Dato’ Dr. Faridah Merican and Artistic Director Joe Hasham OAM, come celebrate SHORT+SWEET’s 16th season with us!
