About this opportunity

MAX3MIN is an international festival of short films that have a maximum running time of 3 minutes. From all over the world, it seeks out stories to tell in the short length of a song, to take a photo of a time that is changing quickly.
Founded in 2021 as a digital festival, from its second year it was transformed into a hybrid festival, to take the selected films on to the large screen.
The third festival in 2023 will be structured round a series of rendezvous, with a big conclusive party in Milan, alongside a calendar of online screenings on the website, free of charge and accessible in streaming all over the world, for the promotion of inclusive and democratic cinema.

The aim of MAX3MIN is to be a showcase for short, very short films that often struggle to find a space, and a megaphone for all filmmakers who tell their stories of the world through images and a new language that makes shortness and quickness its force.

For the International Competition, MAX3MIN accepts films of all genres, on any topic, from any country in the world. Fiction, animation, videoclip, advertising, digital art, documentary and mockumentary… the result will be a celebration of ultra-short cinema, an explosion of ideas, contaminations and stimuli. The selection team pays particular attention to the geographical composition of the competition: MAX3MIN opens windows on to unconventional stories far from Western-centric narrations, to reflect as far as possible the heterogeneity of the films entered and the different national cultures of the various countries.
