    [quote_box_center]This exchange of culture and expression is a fundamental element of shnit. Festival venues are more than just a cinema venue – they are interactive, living, breathing spaces, with activations, vendors, music and performance, as well as collaborative work from a number of local artists. And of course, the audience is involved in creation too, with interactive installations, and constant filming and photography pictures being uploaded daily to the world on social media platforms.[/quote_box_center]
