The Soap Factory’s Ten Second Film Festival celebrates innovative and spontaneous filmmaking. Voted Best Festival in 2011 by City Pages, The Ten Second Film Festival is a celebration of micro-cinema and the everyman—a chance for anyone to be a cinematic god, if only for 10 seconds.

This year The Ten Second Film Festival is changing nights! In 2012, The Ten Second Film Festival takes place on a new night—June 9th—as part of Northern Spark, the dusk-to-dawn arts festival in Minneapolis and Saint Paul.

Festival emcees this year will be the Twin Cities’ newest sketch comedy troupe, The 3rd Kind featuring Ian Fishman, Hannah Wydeven, Sidney Oxborough, Dave Christians, Kevin Albertson. For the third consecutive year, MPLS.TV will also be bringing the love. Selected from nearly 300 film submissions in 2012, the top 100 films are assembled into 10 incredible categories including: Best Screenplay, Stunt Double, and Eye Candy. Come early to snag a good spot, people watch, and enjoy this mainstay of summer, The Ten Second Film Festival.
