The What—and Why—of MicroMania

“Brevity is the sister of genius.”
—Anton Chekhov

MicroMania Film Festival & MicroMania Channel are nonprofit projects created to support independent voices in film by celebrating the skill and artistry of micro-short films (up to 5 minutes long before credits).

Films 5 minutes and under cost less to produce allowing more people to share their voices and vision through film.

MicroMania amplifies micro-short films and the people who make them. We’re constantly dreaming up new ways to grow audiences for our community, including:

  • Year-round programming featuring officially selected filmmakers
  • The MicroMania Channel
  • Encore presentations, including storefront pop-ups and donation-based public screenings
  • MicroMania Film Festival – our annual multi-week event series featuring live screening events, virtual workshops & chats, mentorship events, online watch parties and more!

The MicroMania community is centered in encouragement and support — once a MicroMania filmmaker, always a MicroMania filmmaker. We love hearing about and sharing info related to your new projects, acceptances to other film festivals and awards. The more you tag us, the more we engage, share, retweet, and highlight across our networks. We win together.
