M60 Montréal 60 Second Film Festival 2012, Sept 13-15

The M60 Montréal 60 Second Film Festival gets underway tonight at Cinéma Excentris. The festival features over 80 films of exactly one minute in running time. All 80+ films will play each night at the festival.

Each year in July, M60 has a launch party for the festival where a theme is announced for interested filmmakers. This year's theme was "faux pas." Filmmakers are then given a month to conceive and create a one minute film.

I participated in this year again and made a little ditty Four Paws with co-director Faisal Lutchmedial. I also acted in the film alongside Joslyn Rogers, who also participated in the M60 film I made last year. The title is of course a loose pun on the theme "faux pas" and refers to a dog named Wally that is featured in the film.

The M60 Montréal 60 Second Film Festival takes place at 9pm on September 13 to 15 at Cinéma Excentris, 3536 boul. St-Laurent.
