After sifting through about 300 minutes (or 100 entries) of submission footage, the Seattle Times in collaboration with the Seattle International Film Festival have selected the best 3 Minute Masterpieces from the lot. 11 winners were chosen in both youth and adult filmmaker brackets, which can be viewed in YouTube form on the Seattle Times site. Most of the entries were made in or around Seattle with a Reno, Nevada submission sneaking its way in. Filmmakers from ages 10 and up made it into the winners circle, including NFFTY frequenter, 16 year-old-director Ben Kadie. You also can see the 3 Minute Masterpiece films on the big screen (for free!) at 10 AM on Saturday, May 21, at SIFF Cinema, where the grand-prize winner will be announced.
