This powerhouse festival started in Australia 15 years ago and has offshoots around the world: Australia, Dubai, India, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore and Zimbabwe. 

Short+Sweet Hollywood is the first Short+Sweet festival in North America and believes that Hollywood’s unique qualities will provide enhanced opportunities for artists, bringing a quick taste of local and international talent to Los Angeles.
