Call for Entries // Filminute 2018

Dear filmmakers, we would be thrilled if you would consider making and submitting a one-minute film to this year’s 13th edition of Filminute, the international one-minute film festival. Submissions are due August 31st, and the festival runs from October 1-30 @

Making Filminute's 25-film shortlist gets you exposure to a global audience and community of passionate film lovers, producers and filmmakers that have evolved over the past 12 years. Making the shortlist also gets your film in front of the annual 7-person Filminute jury, made up of international luminaries from the worlds of independent film, the arts, and communications. Richard Linklater, Neill Blomkamp, Hou Hsiao-Hsien, Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, Samira Makhmalbaf, Michael Ondaatje, Cathy Schulman, and Kevin Roberts have all been prior members of our jury. In addition, since 2007, FIPRESCI (The International Federation of Film Critics) has nominated one of its members to the annual Filminute jury.

In addition to Best Filminute and the People’s Choice Award, Filminute also offers 5 Jury Commendation awards, the Top Rated Award and a number of popular partner awards. As well, starting in 2017, Filminute, in collaboration with our Canadian partner CineCoup, has begun offering an annual feature film development prize, worth $10,000CAD. Last year’s development prize winner was Ignacio F. Rodo for his film ‘Indigo’
