3 minutes of visual pleasure

MAX3MIN Very Short Film Festival is an international festival of short films that have a maximum running time of 3 minutes. From all over the world, it seeks out stories to tell in the short length of a song, to take a photo of a time that is changing quickly.

Founded in 2021 as a digital festival, from its second year it was transformed into a hybrid festival, to take the selected films on to the large screen.

The third festival in 2023, will be structured round a series of rendezvous, with a big conclusive party in Milan at Cineteca Milano MIC, alongside a calendar of online screenings here on our website, free of charge and accessible in streaming all over the world, for the promotion of inclusive and democratic cinema.


11/17 September: online, worldwide & free for everybody
15/17 September: Cineteca Milano MIC

The aim of MAX3MIN is to be a showcase for short, very short films that often struggle to find a space, and a megaphone for all filmmakers who tell their stories of the world through images and a new language that makes shortness and quickness its force.
