Avail Video

"One of the key differences between video art and theatrical cinema is that video art does not necessarily rely on many of the conventions that define theatrical cinema."

The intent of the video artist outside the conventions of narrative film will lead to creative discoveries. Filminute asks video artists to bring these same discoveries and surprises back into the narrative realm, and to provoke and enrich the emerging genre of one-minute films.

Filminute's "By Invitation" partnership and collaboration with Avail Video considerably expands our festival's call for entries to a large community of video artists. We expect some of these submissions to be as likely contenders for "Best Filminute" as the works from conventional filmmakers, videographers, advertising art directors, designers, animators, and writers.

The unusual suspects and the usual suspects are equally of interest to Filminute as we explore, challenge and grow the genre of one-minute films.
