Short & Sweet, which began in London in 2006 and expanded to Sydney, Toronto and Cape Town, brings people and short film together. The finest short films, music videos and animations from around the world, from established directors to new talent, celebrate film and take audiences on a journey: creatively, personally and emotionally.
Last year saw the first Short & Sweet Cape Town event. The winter edition played to a packed house for the full week and while plans are underway for another event this year Short & Sweet is offering a once-off summer screening on Valentine’s Day.
Summer cocktails and popcorn are the perfect replacement for champagne and roses when paired with a selection of short films with the steamy undertones of love, hate and desire. This “un-regrettable one-night stand” is sure to make your heart throb.
Doors open at 6pm with the first screening at 7:30pm, but due to the popularity of last year’s event it is best to get there early. If you do, you’ll also enjoy the smooth sounds of Vegus Nerve while sipping an ice cold drink from the bar. The popcorn is free for early birds.
Tickets cost R35 each or R60 per couple.
Short & Sweet Valentine Summer screening takes place at The Dream Factory, 10 Orphan Street (located between Bree and Loop Street).
