The 60 Second International Film Festival is a youth-focused platform encouraging young filmmakers from the world over to step up and showcase a 60 second peek into their minds – a film of remarkable brevity but unparalleled insight – on any one of several categories. As a mission statement, 60SIFF doesn’t pull back on its punches – that’s an attractive prospect!
The first round of the 60SIFF was limited only to Pakistan, where this platform was birthed, and received over 200 fabulous short films from budding auteurs across the country. That’s an achievement in itself for a hitherto-unknown project but what’s genuinely impressive is the new grounds they traversed in the art of narrative and storytelling. Creating compelling and meaningful tales in a mere 60 seconds is no easy feat, presenting a unique challenge to young filmmakers to level up their craft and audiences with ample chances to experience new and engaging art.
60SIFF went to newer heights with their second round, inviting nearly 400 films from over 40 countries globally, an unprecedented accomplishment for a Pakistani platform. Read More via SparkBuzzing.
