In a town awash with film festivals, it can be hard to stand out. But only one fest has no admission fee, no jury, and a strict length requirement of one minute. The Montreal 60 Second Film Festival (M60), currently celebrating its fifth year of existence, is throwing a party tonight, Thursday July 18, at which prospective filmmakers can sign up to participate, and are given one month to create their minute- long masterwork.
