M60: Montreal 60 Second Film Festival

Presents "CHANCE"

Théâtre Rialto, 5723 avenue du Parc 7:30 pm / $8

Montreal's shortest film festival is back for its fourth year, presenting more than 70 one-minute movies on the theme of CHANCE.

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. Filmmakers registered in mid-July and had one month to complete their films. On 16 and 17 September, the resulting masterpieces and disasters -- every single one of them -- will be screened at the historic Rialto Theatre.

This is M60's biggest-ever year: after years of sold-out screenings at La Sala Rossa and Cinéma du Parc, we are finally coming to Mile End's most magnificent movie palace -- the Rialto, built in 1923. We look forward to showing M60's rollercoaster line-up in this gorgeous milieu, before a packed & cheering crowd.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading 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. 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.
