60 Second Intl. Film Festival is a celebrated initiative directed at building the creative capacity of filmmakers, and providing them with a platform to showcase their talents. The platform attracts young filmmakers from all over the world to step up and ‘film’ their thoughts, stories, ideas & opinions in just 60 seconds. Our venture has included screenings both, across Pakistan, and internationally at Open Space Nepal, Delhi International Film Festival in India, AIESEC Blida in Algeria, the USIP headquarters in Washington DC and Harvard University in Boston, USA.

This year's festival theme is all about FOLK-STORIES. The purpose is to reincarnate and revive the cultural stories and traditions that have gradually been ignored with the passage of time.

The categories include:

1. Music
2. Poetry
3. Food
4. Architecture
5. Folklore
6. Craft
7. Fiction
8. Virtual Reality

    We were thrilled that our animated short "Goldzinger," originally created for the Heartland Emmy Awards' broadcast, was selected by the 60 Second Intl. Film Festival. 60SIFF features an eclectic program of extremely short film gems that are enjoyed by a diverse audience numbering in the thousands. This is a wonderful platform for the promotion of films of exactly sixty seconds duration. The interaction with the festival staff was first rate, and the event itself is very large, well-established and heavily promoted on a global basis. Highly recommended!

  • We are accustomed to taking the trouble of going out with loved ones, paying ticket money, buying the popcorn and then suffering a well marketed,expensively mounted but completely hollow two or even three hour spectacle. A good film is a good film. Whether fiction or non-fiction, local or foreign language, three hours or thirty seconds, except not all good films find an audience. 60 second International festival is one such platform. It puts focus back on the art form and what creative people from around the world can do under such a short time constrain. Reason enough to participate in and support this festival.
