About Our Short Film Competition
In the modern era, we can see many short films on social media platforms. People used to create short films without even thinking about the quality, theme, and content. The current 5G-oriented information technology has shown the way to the productions of many crummy short films. The lack of proper censoring results in the creation of lousy films. Possibly, we may ignore watching high-quality short films due to the many poor-quality films that we watch.

LK International productions understand the situation very well and offer talented filmmakers a great opportunity through our short film competition. The short-film competition we organize is a chance that cannot be missed for new talents who would like to present their unique storytelling skills to the whole world. With the short film competition, LK International focuses on bringing out the true art of short-filmmaking from the fresh talents by providing them with a finer platform to display the depth and diversity of their creative thinking and creativity to the global audience when it comes to making short films.
