The Just A Minute Festival is an online viewers choice event that encourages people to make short films, one minute or less, using any device or media of any genre or subject matter. Once completed the production can be uploaded to our site: any time before January 1, 2024. Entries not submitted directly through the Festival website will not be considered. All eligible submissions will then be viewed by industry professionals who will choose the top 60 entries. On January 10th, these curated films will be streamed at random through the site and folks can view and vote on the films as often as they like. Voters are eligible for the weekly drawing of $20, our way of saying thanks for voting. Voting ends March 1st. There are cash prizes and there is no entry fee. For more information, visit our site

    A friendly festival with cute souvenirs. Though I hope they can work on with the choosing of film to watch and vote like a time stamp rather that a random play for it consume much time especially that you invited your families and friends.
