Some stories are most impactful when they are concise. What story can you tell in only 60 seconds? In A Minute Film Festival was created to give filmmakers the opportunity to showcase their ability to tell a story in only one minute. Our goal is to help connect the films with an audience and build potential for future collaboration among artists.
We showcase high quality films in a festival setting. To attract a global audience, we will have two methods of showcasing the films. A live festival with the top films screening and an online showcase of selected films, so that even those who can't make the journey to the festival, can enjoy the films and become fans of your work.
WHAT STORY CAN YOU TELL IN ONLY ONE MINUTE?
1 minute films 1 minute trailers
2 minute films unproduced screenplays = 1 minute
