This year’s collection of 25 one-minute films in the Filminute festival will be screened tomorrow, September 28, between 8 and 10 pm, on the Big Screen. Besides this year’s selection, some other former and never-been-seen before 60-second format films will be shown.
This 6th edition also features 16 premieres, more than double the number of previous years. The films this year came from 18 countries on 6 continents and include: Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Canada, China, Colombia, Croatia, France, Hungary, India, Japan, Netherlands, Pakistan, Romania, Spain, South Africa, the United Kingdom, and USA.
The international jury of the festival is made up of: Emmy-award winning film producer & journalist, Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy; Italian fiction and screenplay writer Carlo Pizzati; FIPRESCI Vice President & Turkish film critic Alin Tasciyan; Sid Lee Creative Agency Co-Creative Director and partner Eva Ven Den Bulcke; and VP, Walt Disney Imagineering Research and Development Jon Snoddy.
The 25 shortlisted films are subject to both a public vote and a review by our international jury. The Filminute jury is responsible for the selection of Best Filminute and the awarding of five Jury Commendations.
The Best Filminute award is a unique contrast and complement to the audience-awarded People’s Choice. You can cast your vote for your favorite entry in this year’s festival until September 30th.
