The Big MINI Media Festival was set up 15 years ago to showcase undiscovered talent, who were using DV when it was in its infancy. After a decade, BMM is still doing just that, giving an outlet to up-and-coming filmmakers from around the world who are using digital media to showcase their talent.

With a growing group of sponsor/partners, BMM looks to differentiate itself in its second decade.

For the first time ever, all of our festival submissions are digital. We are ONLY accepting digital uploads.


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 (less than a minute), short narrative, animation, webisodes, and virtual reality short films. We also have short- and feature-length screenplay categories.

With our 15th 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 films.

This year's festival theme is "Virtual Reality: A 360° Look at Our Future." How will immersive technology affect the mainstream and subculture film business? What new modalities will arise with the use of this technology, i.e. augmented reality and 360 digital technologies?

Join a group of award-winning new media artists for a discussion on innovation in virtual reality technologies and its vast money market possibilities.
