Quickie Fest: The One Minute Movie Festival was created in 2016 by Mike Muntner and Anna Roisman. The comedic duo hosts and produces the festival in NYC. Quickie Fest showcases the best short-form videos 60 seconds or less. The only challenge is, 'Can you tell a story in a minute?' Quickie Movies range in style from comedic to animated, silent films to dramas, documentaries, and some surprises we've never heard of!
The festival takes place in one evening. Winning movies are announced at each festival: The Special Jury Selection, The Audience Selection, Best Actor, and Best Actress and some fun surprises. ‘The Special Jury’ is made up of professionals in the industry: Directors, Producers, Actors, Artists, Comedians and Musicians.
Past ‘Special Jury’ members have joined us from TruTV, Above Average, Comedy Central, Cowboy Bear Ninja, Us Weekly, BET, Huffington Post, The President Show, ArtSlant, Buchwald, Risk!, One Tree Hill, ABC News, NBC News, TAXI TV, and SNL!
There is an opening reception to start the evening. (Refreshments included and sponsored by Sixpoint Brewery.) The show is split in two halves, with an intermission. At the end of the second half the special jury and the audience vote, with awards presented at the conclusion of the evening.
Quickie Fest VIII will be held at the SVA Theatre in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan on Saturday August 29th at 7pm.
