The Short Shorts Film Festival & Asia is celebrating its twentieth anniversary, and you’re invited to the party.
It has now been twenty years since Japanese actor Tetsuya Bessho founded the Short Shorts Film Festival & Asia [SSFF & ASIA] festival in the Harajuku neighborhood of Tokyo back in 1999. That first event would always be a hard act to follow.
At the inaugural edition, six short films directed by George Lucas back in his student days were screened. This caught the attention of the famed Star Wars creator, and he has supported SSFF & ASIA ever since. In a statement made in regard to the festival he once said, “Film Festivals do matter. They educate and entertain audiences with collections of works from around the world, but also they are the platforms that can change the lives of the directors behind the films forever.”
