Big Teeth

Sixty Second

Film Festival

FEATURING 1-MINUTE FILMS INSPIRED BY A FAMOUS WORK OF ART CHOSEN AT RANDOM BY EACH DIRECTOR.

We are lucky to often work with people who recognize the power of telling a fully fleshed out story in just a minute, but ultimately the work we do is to sell a product or educate on a topic. The Big Teeth Sixty-Second Film Fest became a way to take the skills we use on a daily basis and use them for the sake of art and entertainment. This annual event ends up being a great way for us to engage our local community while also recharging our creative batteries with new ideas and methods of filmmaking.
