CALL for ENTRIES: Ten Second Film Festival
I am the soup queen. I accidentally found out during a run of bad weather one winter during which we couldn’t make it to the grocery store that I am really good at making soup. I had a whole series of artwork happen because I accidentally put myself in a situation where I was trapped at home too. My point? Maybe life is just a series of accidents, and with any luck, maybe more of them will be happy than not. If you’ve accidentally (or purposefully) shot 10 seconds of good film, here’s your chance to put it to good use.

Ten Second Film Festival
The Soap Factory’s Ten Second Film Festival celebrates innovative and spontaneous filmmaking. Voted Best Festival in 2011 by City Pages, The Ten Second Film Festival is a celebration of micro-cinema and the everyman—a chance for anyone to be a cinematic god, if only for 10 seconds.
This year The Ten Second Film Festival is changing nights! In 2012, The Ten Second Film Festival takes place on a new night—June 9th—as part of Northern Spark, the dusk-to-dawn arts festival in Minneapolis and Saint Paul.
Festival emcees this year will be the Twin Cities’ newest sketch comedy troupe, The 3rd Kind featuring Ian Fishman, Hannah Wydeven, Sidney Oxborough, Dave Christians, Kevin Albertson. For the third consecutive year, MPLS.TV will also be bringing the love. Come early to snag a good spot, people watch, and enjoy this mainstay of summer, The Ten Second Film Festival.
