MINIKINO FILM WEEK 4, Bali 6th to 13th October 2018 is the 4th edition of the annual international short film festival in Bali, Indonesia. Minikino Film Week founded and organized by Minikino
MFW 4 presenting International Short Film programs, that is along with special programs exchange "Indonesia Raja", short film programs exchange of South-East Asia Country “S-Express”, and other networking based short film programs. MFW also presents various fringe programs as complementary events and workshops focusing on the theme of the present festival.
MFW aims to build and strengthen the network of short film screenings in Bali, providing spaces for works of short films to their audiences, that might be difficult to obtain anywhere else. On the other end, providing festival audiences with an opportunity to see and discuss about films they might never get to see otherwise.
Minikino believes that a short film, like a poem or short story, is a self-contained work with its own literary merit. A well-programmed selection of short films is a potent stimulant for discussion, which in turn will promote social awareness and critical thinking.
