We seek Super Short films (one minute or less in length) of an artistic flavor suitable for all audiences. Think "visual haiku or poetry."
MISSION & OBJECTIVE
The Big Mini Media Festival was set up 15 years ago to showcase undiscovered talent using media that were not generally hitting the mainstream. After a decade, BMM is still doing that - giving an outlet to up-and-coming filmmakers from around the world to show off their talent. With a growing group of sponsor/partners, BMM looks to differentiate itself in its second decade.
ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
The Big Mini Media Festival is a two-day event hosted by the Media Arts Department of Long Island University's Brooklyn Campus. The festival recognizes the best short- and feature-length documentary, experimental, Super Short films (less than a minute) and short narrative video productions. We also have short- and feature-length screenplay categories.
With our 14th annual festival, we further encourage filmmakers of all genres and technical levels to submit their videos and again make this year's festival an exciting array of independent and international video.
This year's festival theme is, "New Media." Over the years, the formats for distribution have changed: starting with film and now the Internet. How has this new format changed the nature of distribution? What value have we gained? And, what have we lost? Distribution in the age of the Internet - what is it, and how has it affected our lives.
Join this group of award-winning digital filmmakers for a discussion on the pros and cons of emerging technologies and the Internet as a distribution platform.
More announcements coming soon!
