Short Circuit, Singapore’s First LGBT Film Festival, announced today that it would be returning with its highly anticipated seventh edition – Short Circuit 7. Held on the 21st October 2023 at The Projector, the event promises to celebrate diversity, artistry and a nod of support to the LGBTQ+ community.
Featuring a diverse line-up of eleven short films by Singaporean filmmakers, the festival, which was established in 2006, explores a wide range of themes such as love, identity, resilience and acceptance. This year, the programme will also include a host of engaging panel discussions and interactive Q&A sessions with the filmmakers themselves.
Held in support of The T Project and Oogachaga, all proceeds from the festival will be dedicated to creating a more inclusive and affirming society for queer individuals. The funds will be used to aid The T Project, as it continues its efforts to provide social services, such as shelter, support and resources for transgender individuals in need, and for Oogachaga to continue rendering counselling and support services to individuals, couples and families within the LGBTQ+ community.
With a collective objective of exulting in diversity, inclusiveness, and individuality, Short Circuit 7 transcends the boundaries of a mere film festival. It stands as a jubilation of an interconnected humanity and a resolute pledge of support for the LGBTQ+ community.
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.”
-Mr. Isaac Tng, Festival Director of Short Circuit 7
Through the captivating films that will be featured at Short Circuit 7, we aim to shine a light on the beauty of the LGBTQ+ community, fostering not just understanding but a profound sense of empathy and unity,” he added.
