Festival Announcement

The wait is finally over, we are back for 60SIFF 15-16 & we aspire to make this round more creative, loud and grand than ever before!

Having received a phenomenal amount of submissions from over 40 countries for this round, we are all set to inspire and entertain you with the shortlisted best of these. The films fall under diverse categories, namely: Creative, Abstract, Action, Comedy, Drama, Education, Environment, Interactive Art and Vision 2020 and Water.

After a deliberate in-house screening session, 60 films were shortlisted from the hundreds that had been received. Following this, our panel of jury comprising expert filmmakers, and dedicated to the goals of the 60 Second Intl. Film Festival, is selecting films on the basis of concept, content & execution and most importantly, the impact they create in the given span of 60 seconds.

Last year’s festival not only provided a platform for freedom of speech through stimulating films but also served as an international platform that promulgated the messages made my our filmmakers to a multitude of people. Besides this, given our philosophy of sharing a complete story in 60 seconds, a screening of 20 minutes allows the transfer of 20 powerful yet distinct ideas which are also very entertaining!

To keep up the glorious tradition of filmmaking, starting from February, we will be screening our top selection of films in cities all over Pakistan. Mark your calendars, we are coming to Islamabad on 13th February!
