The FilmOneFest app is a celebration of one-minute film as an art form

New York, New York – Polymash Inc. is very excited to announce the release of the FilmOneFest app. The FilmOneFest app is a collection of one-minute films from filmmakers all around the world with supporting stories, artists’ statements and interviews. Furthermore, the app will continue to accept ongoing submissions to FilmOneFest throughout the year, culminating in the selection of one-minute films to be shown at each year’s festival.

The FilmOneFest Festival:
FilmOneFest is an annual outdoor film festival that shows approximately 60 one-minute films from all over the world. FilmOneFest is in its third year. Last year, almost 1000 people gathered on the lawns, laid down their blankets, stretched out their lawn chairs, opened up their coolers and joined in celebration on a balmy July summer’s evening to watch one-minute films under the stars next to the marina at Atlantic Highlands, NJ, USA.

App Features:
* One-minute films and videos from filmmakers all around world

The Experience:
FilmOneFest app is more than an app showing one-minute films. To provide additional interest, members of the Selection Panel and filmmakers were interviewed about their inspirations and visions. Their self-expression adds increased appreciation to the one-minute film art form. Hearing directly from the creators themselves reveals a whole new set of meanings. It’s powerful and expansive.
