Short Film Competition 2014

in association with KLM and VisitKL


Terracotta Festival, in association with KLM and VisitKL, is excited to present its second annual Short Film Competition, with a fantastic prize package on offer, including a trip for two to the beautiful city of Kuala Lumpur. This dynamic Asian destination city is a great place to enjoy stunning views from chic sky-scrapers before descending into the bustling streets in search of colourful markets, mouth-watering food, and a nightlife as hot as the weather.


The winning entry will also enjoy an Official World Premiere screening at the Opening Night of the Terracotta Festival, as part of the prize presentation ceremony. Entries will be judged by a panel including guest directors, actors, and film journalists. The winner will be notified on 14th May 2014.
