Three Minutes Makes A Great Film

SAN FRANCISCO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – All it takes to make a great film is three minutes.

The San Francisco Three Minute Film Festival, happening this Saturday (Aug. 8) at the Root Division Gallery, is bringing the work of thirty filmmakers to the screen to debut the three-minute movies they’ve created over the last month.

Camille Verboort, who runs the event, says the fest gives people the chance to get back in touch with their creative side, since adult responsibilities force many to neglect their artistic desires.

Though some think three minutes isn’t long enough to tell a story, Verboort assures that a good movie doesn’t require lots of time.

She says, “A lot of people ask if they can turn in a longer film. I tell them to edit it because less is always more.”

Still, year after year, participants try to sneak a few extra minutes into their films.

However, Verboort doesn’t mind since she thinks the process rather than the result is most important.
