Held for eight consecutive days from Oct. 7 to 14, the 3rd MFW  presented 209 short films in 42 programs in 17 venues all around Bali. The festival, which was said to have been attended by over 4,500 people, also featured pop-up cinemas, workshops and a Begadang Film-making Competition where participants only had 34 hours to make a five-minute film.

I Made Suarbawa, the executive director of the 3rd MFW, said this year’s festival was also the first time an awards evening was held for the participants. “Previously, we curated [short films] for screening programs [program pemutaran] only. So it [the award] recognized the short films we had seen  and liked and which the judges deemed the best.”

I Made also viewed the award as an important element to observe the festival’s track record. “We also want to see whether these filmmakers will develop or not.” (asw)
