"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?"
