Sharing is caring!

In a time when the collective clamor for diversity and inclusivity is not just loud but transformative, Singapore echoes back with an event that’s resounding in its impact and profound in its depth.

Poised at the intersection of art, culture, and celebration, the revered Short Circuit, Singapore’s first LGBT Film Festival, is set to make a spectacular comeback this October. Brimming with narratives that are both powerful and poignant, the event beckons the modern audience to a space where diversity isn’t just celebrated, but revered and studied.

Here’s what you can expect from this groundbreaking festival that wears its heart and colours unabashedly on its reel:

In its 7th iteration, the festival continues its rich tradition of bringing to fore narratives that are as diverse as they are compelling. Slated for October 21st, 2023, at the cultural hotspot, The Projector, “Short Circuit 7” promises not just an exploration into the intricate world of the LGBTQ+ community but a jubilant celebration of their diversity, resilience, and identity. Mark your calendars, because this is not just a festival, it’s a movement, it’s a revolution on reel.

Renowned for being a fertile ground for artistic innovation and thought-provoking dialogues, this year’s festival takes it up a notch. A carefully curated selection of eleven short films by some of Singapore’s finest filmmakers is set to spark conversations on love, identity, resilience, and acceptance.

“The festival is more than just a showcase of brilliant filmmakers; it is a celebration of vibrant tapestry woven with the threads of diversity, where every colour, every narrative, and every unique identity takes centre stage,”

asserts Mr. Isaac Tng, the Festival Director of Short Circuit 7.

But the festival isn’t stopping at merely showcasing films. Enriching the program are interactive Q&A sessions and panel discussions, offering the audience a golden opportunity to delve deeper into the minds of the creators and the stories they craft. Through this intimate setup, the festival aims “to shine a light on the beauty of the LGBTQ+ community, fostering not just understanding but a profound sense of empathy and unity,” adds Mr. Tng.

In a compassionate stride towards building an inclusive society, the festival dedicates all its proceeds to fostering a more affirming society for queer individuals. The beneficiaries of this altruistic move are The T Project, which tirelessly works towards offering shelter, support, and resources for transgender individuals in need, and Oogachaga, an organization devoted to providing counselling and support services to individuals, couples, and families within the LGBTQ+ community. It’s a concerted effort, a hand extended in solidarity, making sure that the essence of the festival trickles down to real, tangible change in the community.

The tickets to be part of this celebratory voyage are up for grabs from September 10th, 2023, with two exclusive screenings to choose from. Following the screenings, attendees will have the chance to engage in meaningful dialogues that are expected to last for around 30 minutes, offering a holistic experience.

Proudly sponsored by Remy Choo Chambers LLC, Neil Conversion Clinic, Gerald Varella and Andrew Graham, and Dr. Jeremiah Pereira, the festival invites one and all to be part of a cultural phenomena that speaks volumes in the language of love, understanding, and unity.
