On July 13, the only chance for Montreal's filmmakers to sign up for the city's fourth annual festival of one-minute films. M60, the Montreal 60 Second Film Festival, has no judges, no jury, no prizes and no submission fees. It accepts filmmakers on a first-come, first-served basis, welcoming amateurs and professionals alike. But there's only one way to take part - by registering at our party on July 13. Once filmmakers have registered, they will learn the (top secret!) theme of this year's festival - and have one month to complete their movies.
This year, M60 will be enjoying its biggest-ever screenings, at the Rialto theatre on September 16 and 17. All are welcome to the party on July 13, which includes not just filmmaker registration - but a free party with some of Montreal's finest performers. Musical sets by local stars Ariel Engle and Wind-Up People, comedy courtesy of Montreal Improv, plus free games, DJs, and fantastic one-of-a-kind door-prizes. Learn about the festival, chat with filmmakers, meet film lovers, and celebrate the summer with Montreal's film-festival-that- could.

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
