The submissions are in for the third installment of the 2-Minute Film Festival at Carnegie Museum of Art. This year, aspiring moviemakers from around the globe sent in their best and briefest work responding to the theme “At Play.” The videos reflect an amazingly broad and multi-faceted interpretation of play, at times absurd, touching, political, and abstract.

Carnegie Museum of Art’s 2-Minute Film Festival ascribes to the belief that less is more. Since its inception in 2010, 2MFF has been committed to finding the best (and briefest!) videos and sharing them with the city of Pittsburgh. Past calls for entries have elicited submissions from around the country, and the resulting films are consistently surprising, quirky, illuminating, tender, and hilarious. The festival screening itself is a favorite summer activity for Pittsburghers, drawing crowds to the museum courtyard.
