Once safely confined within Europe, in 2011 it’s confirmed: shnit International Shortfilmfestival is free and spreading fast!  It’s no surprise, as the festival consistently delivers a colourful celebration of the best in international short film from all corners of the globe.  In its ninth edition, some 300 films flicker across shnit screens in stalwart-cities Berne and Cologne, newcomers Vienna, Singapore and San Jose, and for the second time, building on 2010’s success, South Africa’s very own Mother City.  A world network, one festival. That’s the shnit, and its approaching fast!

In preparation for this year’s bigger and better shnit in Cape Town, join us for a look back at some of the film highlights of 2010 – local and international – screening at one of the Mother Shnitty’s high points, the Grand Daddy Hotel’s Pink Flamingo Rooftop Cinema.  2 hours of short cinematic masterpieces to look forward to, as well as the announcement of Cape Town 2011’s Realtime filmmakers, who will compete over the festival weekend, producing three short films to be premiered at shnit’s Closing Night Awards ceremony!

With music, lights and Daddy’s rooftop bar running at full throttle, love, light, laughter and much shnittiness will ensue.  Don’t miss it. Oh and it’s free. Shnitastic!

With a record 4000 entries from over 100 countries, shnit’s 2011 line up is the strongest ever, with a programme to satisfy even the strictest tastes: This year’s international OPEN competition features 80 films, with audience and jury awards totalling more than R400,000.  Naturally, the best in South African shorts take centre-stage every night, from our brand new MADE IN SOUTH AFRICA competition category to the out-of-competition KAAPSE BOBOTIE programme, ensuring shnit in Cape Town has a truly local flavour…  5 to 9 October – Labia, Grand Daddy Hotel, 95 on hout Street and Rocking the Daisies! Shnit gets real…
