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!

IT'S A FILM FESTIVAL. In miniature.

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!

The goal of the Minne Mini is to be inclusive of filmmakers of all experience levels and representative of the diverse voices in the Twin Cities filmmaking community and beyond. We see the two minute time limit as a great equalizer - a unifying blank canvas. We’re giving every filmmaker the same amount of time to express themselves, but what they do with that time is entirely their own. We welcome stories of all types, too, from drama and comedy to genres like science fiction, fantasy, and horror.

Our program is short by comparison: around two hours. However, since the films are all two minutes or less, we can show a lot in that brief amount of time. At our both of our past events, we were be able to screen over 60 films! With that number of voices on display and the variety of content, our program is quite a wild ride!
