Filming the Intangible


What has film got to do with heritage? The Kaki Lima Short Film Competition answers that question effectively.

Film can be a very reflective and evocative medium that captures the uniqueness of a place and its communities. And that is exactly what the Kaki Lima Short Film Competition aims to highlight.

First held in 2014, the annual competition is organised by George Town World Heritage Incorporated (GTWHI), an organisation dedicated to the task of making George Town a sustainable city.

The competition seeks to become a platform for films celebrating heritage and culture, and to encourage the making of short films that celebrate the cultural and historical wealth of Penang. Since its inception, as many as 120 filmmakers have participated, with nine winners being awarded prizes from among more than 100 films.
