Short Shorts Film Festival & Asia (SSFF & ASIA), a qualifying film festival for the annual Academy Awards and one of Asia’s largest international short film festivals, announced its acceptance of entries for the annual 20th edition, which includes the newly established BRANDED SHORTS.

In recent years, companies and organisations have utilised video content in their marketing to improve the image of brands and products. Through the creation of branded movies, they can effectively communicate brand messages and the value of services directly to customers. In 2016, we established BRANDED SHORTS, an extension that specialises in this genre of short films, as a response to the growth in the video advertising market.
