    LE:60 Film Festival

    Watch as skilled Auteurs go eye-to-eye with cleaver amateurs for 100 minutes of One Minute Films the FIRST EVER, only festival of its kind!    

    100 minutes like you've never seen...

    The Lumiere brothers are credited with the first public film screening. Their films ran an averaged 46 seconds: our festival's tiny masterworks come in at 60 seconds apiece. They only had ten films to show that day in 1895: we have over 100! Not to oversell it, but if the Lumiere's could see Le:60 Film Fest - their twin moustaches would explode into flames simultaneously.

    Guidelines for the evening include: exuberance, effulgence, and irrepressible giddiness. Local Boston band PANTS YELL! Will perform and poor Palmer Street will creak like the floorboards of a nightclub.

    Date: Saturday, October 4, 2008
    Time: 5:30 - 10:00 PM
    Place: Palmer Street | Harvard Square | Cambridge
