Give Me a Minute…

Start the stop watches: The one-minute men and women of The One-Minute Film and Video Festival ready set go for opening night at the Bloor Cinema this evening. If the festival’s name doesn’t self-explain, here’s the gist: Each filmmaker is given a subject in which to base a one-minute short film on. Last year’s focus was “firsts,” and this year’s theme is “intersections.” Given the length of the films (that’s 60 seconds for those who don’t keep time in minutes), there’s a good number of screenings per night with good number of perspectives broached. Tonight’s notables include Cowboy Junkies guy Jeff Bird, Toronto-area blogger Matthew C. Brown, and our very own comicatrix Alice Phieu.
At the very least, this’ll be the most efficient film fest of the year.
