Hi All,

This is primarily for those of you in or near Chicago (Milwaukee, Iowa City,
etc), as participants are expected to attend.

I want to let you know about the One-Minute Film Festival, which will be at
the Art Institute of Chicago on Friday, August 13. Details from the AIC are
below. Since event host Jason Simon is not local, I have been recruited to
help publicize and promote the screening (read: to get people to submit!).
Anyone and everyone is able to submit work, whether you are a video maker or
Please consider participating in this unique event ­ there will likely be an
eclectic and diverse range of works showing, from active film/video/new
media artists to people who¹ve never touched a camera before.
Also, please forward this widely to your local email lists, social
networking contacts, friends, students, etc. Anyone can participate, so it
does not matter if they are not a film/video maker.
Patrick Friel
