What’s Cool? Youth Short Film Festival 2018 @ Ipoh Parade


We are in the era where short films, and videos have taken over social media and are a huge part of our digital lifestyle. When was the last time you caught a short film online? Do I know how to make one? Probably not, but I do dabble in short videos to complement the blog at times.

Why Are Short Films Awesome?


Our attention span has grown shorter and shorter the more we spend our time online, as we are inundated with streams of ads, and non productive stuff. Hence, a short film is a big welcome to an otherwise feature length film which we can “never seem to find the time to watch”. Short Films are awesome as they easily catch our attention, holding it for the duration of the film, not letting us go.



Check out the inspiring short film by 1st Runner-up, Muhammad Irfan bin Muhammad Nizam for the Open category in the Ipoh Parade Youth Short Film Festival below. 


Short films or shorts can be categorized as films which have a running time of 40 minutes or less, which are just perfect to showcase what needs to be shown. Inspiring contents, especially those who take effort into incorporating good values, and the love for our country Malaysia. This was exactly what Ipoh Parade’s Youth Short Film Festival aim to showcase, bringing out and celebrating the talents of young and aspiring filmmakers in Malaysia. Read on! 

It was an awesome event!
