Minne Mini Film Festival

Small films. Big screen.

The Minne Mini Film Festival, held in the Twin Cities of Minnesota, isn’t like most film festivals. Our programming shares a key defining element: all films must be two minutes in length or less!

2016 FESTIVAL PROGRAM

The 2016 festival was held at the Capri Theater in Minneapolis at 7pm on Saturday, September 17th.

We received 692 eligible submissions for our inaugural festival. Out of that staggering number, our judges selected the following 66 films to screen. The films represented filmmakers from Minnesota, other regions of the U.S., and nations all over the world. We were so pleased to have such a diverse array of voices in our first ever program!

Films are listed in screening order, along with their director(s). Asterisks note films made by Minnesotan filmmakers.
