KAKI LIMA Short Film Competition (KLSFC) 2014 is a cultural initiative by George Town World Heritage Incorporated to provide filmmakers with a platform to express their creativity through film in the area of heritage, arts and culture.

George Town, together with Melaka, was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site on 7th July 2008. From the thousands of historic buildings to the exquisite food and unique cultural traditions and festivities, George Town is a living city rich in heritage treasures. In line with our efforts to uphold the city's history, culture and traditions, we seek to reach out and involve the public in our journey, allowing them the opportunity to discover the heritage treasure trove that is George Town, UNESCO World Heritage Site.

With the theme "My Island's Best Kept Secret", this year's Kaki Lima Film Competition challenges filmmakers to create inspirational short films to showcase Penang's unique heritage and culture. The short films that best capture the theme in a creative and vibrant way will win cash prizes and be screened during Heritage Celebrations 2014.
