This summer, Carnegie Museum of Art will be presenting the third installment of the 2-Minute Film Festival. The festival is always one of our favorite events, bringing in crowds of people to the museum’s outdoor Sculpture Court to see how much creativity can be fit into 120 seconds. This year’s theme, in keeping with the upcoming International, is “At Play,” and in addition to the outdoor screening we will be offering a number of playful activities as a part of our monthly Culture Club series, giving each visitor the opportunity to make their own short film. The event will take place on Thursday, July 18, so mark your calendars!
You are invited to submit your most creative, most innovative, briefest video engaging in some way with the notion of play to the 2MFF. Each selected entry will eligible for People’s Choice and Juror’s Choice prizes, and for the first time this year, films chosen for the festival screening will also be made available on the 2MFF website, where visitors will be able to vote for their favorite prior to the event. The deadline for submissions is Friday, June 21, 2013.
If you can’t wait until July to watch some short films, we will be making promotional 6-second videos for the event and posting them on Vine. Be sure to follow us, and submit your own Vine using hashtag #2MFF.
