About Minikino

Minikino is a group of people who believe that a short movie is a form of art that, like a poem or short story, is a self-contained work of literature. Seizing this idea, Minikino brings a unique selection of short films (and the makers) from around the world to audience in Indonesia and vice versa.

Minikino runs a monthly screening and discussion since 2002, to provide filmmakers with an opportunity to screen their work to a wider audience. Minikino also provides film festivals both in and out of Indonesia with a unique selection of international or Indonesian short films. At the same time Minikino provides its audience with an opportunity to see and discuss about films they might never get to see otherwise.
