1 minuto

One Minute Festival now all over the world!

The One Minute Festival was created in 1991. It is today the biggest video festival in Latin America, having inspired minute festivals in several countries around the globe.

Since 2007, the Festival has become permanent, receiving films through its portal every day and giving prizes to the best works. In 2009, we gave almost US$ 50,000 in cash awards.

All videos received are evaluated by a team of curators and then published in our website. The One Minute Festival also promotes offline screenings in more than 200 cities in Brazil and abroad, exhibitions in museums, itinerant presentations, festivals in schools and universities, workshops, among other activities. Many of nowadays well-known Brazilian moviemakers have started their career by doing a one Minute film.
