MAKE A FILM that is one minute or less!
The One Minute Movie Contest is the most democratic way to discover new voices and bring them into the Outfest family. When the theme is announced, aspiring and established filmmakers alike use their phones or cameras to shoot a one-minute short film on the topic. All the submissions are screened at the Fusion Finale, followed by audience voting and an announcement of the winners.
This year’s theme is BUILD EMPATHY / BREAK APATHY.
Filmmakers are able to pick one of the categories OR incorporate both into their one-minute film. We encourage you to be creative with the theme!
As a reminder, this is an LGBTQ festival and the content or creator should reflect that.
Once you register you will receive instructions on how to submit and upload your film for the competition. Submit the high-res .mov file of your film to us by Monday, March 9th, at 12PM (noon) Pacific Time. There will be no deadline extensions granted. Submissions must be in the correct format or they will be disqualified.
