Showcasing Global Film Making and Acting Talent
The aim of the 1 Minute Film Festival is to celebrate diversity in film making and to give film makers and actors the opportunity to showcase their talent to a global audience. If we can achieve that then we are happy. 1 minute films often contain an originality, a creative freedom, an energy and an invention that is inspiring and entertaining. They are, as Shakespeare put it, a good deed in a naughty world. “Go out and make something that reflects your interests, your taste, and your ideas. No one will pay you to make something until you have a few things you can show that you’ve directed. I got my start by making short films on my own.” – Joseph Kosinski
Bringing You The Next Best Thing
“Television and cable have become the new independent films, in a sense, for writers and actors to gravitate towards. That’s why I like short films, too; I love doing readings, audio books, working with young filmmakers; anything that keeps you from getting blase about yourself or in a rut.” – Campbell Scott
