The second-annual edition of the Montreal 60 Second Film Festival (or, coolly abbreviated as: M60) kicks off tomorrow and continues through September 9, 10, and 11, 2009.

The festival features filmmakers screening works that are each 60 seconds long on this year's theme of Deception. There are 74 short films in this year's festival, featuring all manner of creative types - from Oscar- and Juno-Award winners, to kids and (probably) various hipster geniuses.

Those of us with shattered attention spans will attend, grasping our heads in machine gun over-stimulation (is it just a coincidence that an M60 is one of the largest machine guns in the US arsenal?). Why not head down and check out the variety of entries in one of the coolest film festivals going?

Details on the festival:

M60: Montreal 60 Second Film Festival

Wednesday, September 9th
Thursday, September 10th
Friday, September 11th
LA SALA ROSSA, 4848 boul. St-Laurent
Doors at 8:30 pm / $7.

Each night features all 74 films being shown, so you can check out the show on any night and not feel like you're missing anything...other than the slow-flow cinema of Terrence Malick, perhaps.

This sounds cool - so the entire film (wtv it is) only lasts 60 seconds... and there are 74 films... which means the festival can't be a very long one.

If everything runs on schedule, it should take 74 minutes to show everything.

And yes, the festival runs three nights, with all 74 films being shown each night. Should be fun!
