For the 9th consecutive year, Filminute, the international one-minute film festival is curating a collection of the world’s best one-minute films. Every year, 25 one-minute films are selected by Filminute from thousands of international submissions. The shortlisted films are voted on by a respected jury and a global audience of filmmakers and film fans participating from over 125 countries.

Filminute is now encouraging filmmakers worldwide to enter their one-minute masterpieces for review before the closing deadline of 20 August 2014. The festival and competition runs from September 1st to 30th.  “Filminute takes great pride each year in attracting talented filmmakers worldwide who are skilled in the art of storytelling and who are drawn to the challenge of creating entertaining, moving and provocative films that are exactly 60-seconds long,” says Festival Co-Founder and Executive Director John Ketchum.

The festival is free to enter and increasingly identifies serious filmmakers aspiring to make a feature film. There is considerable discipline required to develop a film which meets the set of criteria listed on the Filminute.com website. Films are accepted from the categories of fiction, animation, documentary and mash-up.

Filmmakers are attracted by Filminute’s world-class juries and engaged global audience. The 2013 jury included iconic American independent filmmaker Richard Linklater, Orange Prize-winning writer Téa Obreht, and advertising maven Tor Myhren, Grey New York President and Chief Creative Officer. The jury is responsible for selecting the Best Filminute winner and also awards 5 Jury Commendations.

Filmmakers are also drawn to Filminute for its highly coveted People’s Choice Award. “Filminute is designed to be a highly accessible film festival and thrives on audience participation via social media,” says Filminute Co-Founder Sabaa Quao. “We expect to again see a significant increase in participation this year.”
