Courtesy of Film Association of Malawi (FAMA) and Lake of Stars in partnership with Multichoice Malawi, Lilongwe Shorts offers a rare opportunity to the film pundits to have a say and pick which films to get played on DSTV channel Zambezi TV.

According to the organizers, Lilongwe Shorts 2018 edition also helps share amazing Malawian creativity with a wider audience.

“After the success of Lilongwe Shorts London in March, Malawi’s international short film festival returns to Lilongwe, with events planned for Zomba and Blantyre later in 2018. While submissions for the Lilongwe festival have now closed, we’re still accepting short film entries for the Zomba and Blantyre events,” reads a statement on llwshorts.com.

The first two-day Lilongwe Shorts event which took place in May 2015 at Crossroads Hotel featured over eighty short films, live performances, Question and Answer with filmmakers, workshops, exhibitions, an awards ceremony, and a morning of Lilongwe Tots – short films for children.

Shot, edited, and screened all within a space of 24 hours, Malawian filmmakers Mwizalero Nyirenda and Ernest Chikuni created a video at the inaugural 2015 Lilongwe Shorts film.

2018 sees Lilongwe Shorts expanding, with events in London, Lilongwe, and Zomba.
