3-Minute Film Festival May 26 at the Nevada Museum of Art


A wide spectrum of independent films will be shown next week at the 8th Annual 3-Minute Film Festival, a partnership project through the Holland Project, KNPB Channel 5, and the Nevada Museum of Art. Held Thursday, May 26, the 3-Minute Film Festival will take place at the Nevada Museum of Art at 6 p.m. and tickets are $5.

Appealing to people of different ages and experiences, film of all genres, styles, technologies, levels will be screened.

Additionally, this year’s film festival explores a new category: the 15-Second Film. Through modern social media platforms such as Vine and Instagram, people are sharing concise clips, which is why the creators of the festival wanted the category to challenge and encourage filmmakers to share stories in this popular manner.

“The 3-Minute Film Festival is one of our favorite annual events,” said Britt Curtis, Holland Project director. “It’s an amazing showcase of talent and such a great way to see imagination at work – from the young Boys and Girls Club members to the seasoned filmmakers who submit work in nearly every genre. We can’t wait to see this year’s selection on the big screen.”
