Event Details

Attention courtesans of culture and trawlers for truncated cinema! Following three hugely successful seasons, South Africa’s original short film experience, in proud association with Hendrick's Gin, is set to dim the lights and fondle your popcorn once more during its long-awaited return to the Cape Culture Calendar…

Dedicated to the exhibition of short film as a critical art form, Short & Sweet will showcase a hand selected bouquet of 8 short films, animations and music videos each week in the eclectically traditional ambience of the city’s most enchanting Old World Theatre.

Much like a certain exquisitely unusual, quadruple-distilled gin, Short & Sweet has amassed a dedicated following through the originality of its content and the intoxicating allure of its ambience. Taking root once more in the elegant, vintage surrounds of the Old German Club every Tuesday from the 23rd September to Tuesday 28th October.

Season 4 will feature flamboyant food trucks (new menus every week), art exhibitions, jaw-splitting ‘Lume’ light painting displays, multiple screens, video mapping and a proliferation of potent potions, courtesy of Hendrick's Gin South Africa...

Sound Station Studios have come on board this year to facilitate their truly original new concept showcasing some of the city’s most talented musicians. Every week we'll be featuring and recording a different instrumentalist before releasing a unified ‘soundscape’ including all 6 sounds at the end the season. This is an audio-experiment that’ll surely blow your mind!
