**ACCEPTING ONE MINUTE FILMS ONLY; SUBMISSIONS THAT DO NOT FIT THIS CRITERIA WILL BE DISQUALIFIED**
Inviting all filmmakers to submit their 1 minute masterpieces to the second Midnight Madness Toronto Film Festival.
Our 2020 event will be held on November 9, 2020 in downtown Toronto, Canada.

We believe that a capable filmmaker can tell a story in just 60 seconds. We also believe that most of our brains have adapted to a shorter attention span as spurred on by social media channels. And so we created this festival as an outlet for both filmmakers and audience alike to enjoy micro short works of art.
