"The beauty of shnit is simple: Its a truly cross-cultural film festival that brings together the best films from all around the world - and some of the best people from every corner of the world, with all their passions, ideas and yeah, insanities - throws them all into one bright pink pressure-cooker, shakes them up and turns out this spectacular celebration of short film every year.  It's one of the best shorts line ups in the world in any given year, but it doesn't feel self-important or congratulatory - its a pure celebration of the art.  And each Playground gets a chance to shine, which is so important.  I've only seen shnit grow and grow over the years I've been involved. I consider myself lucky to have been a part of it.  Did I mention the insanity?"

"shnit is love and madness to the shorts. A magenta family growing and expanding every year around the globe sharing their energy and enthusiasm. It is an event that unites the world in a 12 days magenta party, but at the same time is the felling that unite is better and short bigger."

"shnit is the future of film festivals. A globally connected, synchronized, full resolution experience that both taps into the seriousness of what we do as filmmakers at the same time celebrates the cheeky, naughty, fun, and bawdy aspects of what we do. Being part of a team is its own pleasure, but being part of a global team, has kind of been given a new meaning in my book. I think what being part of Shnit really means to anyone is the opportunity to be in the vanguard -and that you’re on the edge of something great."
