One Minute Film Festival 2007

Advance tickets for the One Minute Film & Video Festival go on sale today

This year's One Minute Film & Video Festival is right around the corner - it takes place next Thursday night at the Bloor Cinema. For those who don't want to chance the ticket line on the night of the show (the 2005 show took place in the midst of a blizzard, after all), a limited number of advance tickets will be on sale starting today at Queen Video.

That's the Queen Video on Bloor (480 Bloor Street West), not the Queen Video on Queen. Cripes! Advance tickets are $8; tickets at the door will run ya $10. So there's a coffee's worth of savings in it for you, too.

The theme for this year's festival is "secrets," though as usual, the filmmakers have been encouraged to interpret the theme as broadly as they like and in whatever filmed medium they wish. And yes, all of the films will be exactly one minute long. The films come from all over the world - this year's programme features work from Spain, Estonia, Italy, Denmark, Ireland, Austria, and Big Brother Down South.

There is, of course, also generous local representation: nearly twenty of the 50-odd films in the festival come from Toronto, and not one but two of the one-minute mini-opuses feature Etobicokian supergenius Dave Foley.
