    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.

    For the first time ever, our festival submissions are completely digital, accepting digital uploads.
