A CURATED SHOWCASE OF BELLINGHAM ARTISTS
Music / dance / theatre / SHORT FILM / POETRY / and more!
if it's ≤ 12 minutes we want to see it!
The 12 Minutes Max festival is an adjudicated, multidisciplinary, performing arts showcase that brings you high quality performing arts and film created by local Bellingham artists. Every piece must be under twelve minutes in length. We include short film, dance, theater, music, and performance art.
The original 12 Minutes Max concept was created by On The Boards of Seattle Washington and has been running since 1979. In 2013 The Firehouse Performing Arts Center launched its very own version of 12 Minutes Max and broadened the scope by opening submissions opportunities to short film. Every showcase is adjudicated by two new prominent artists of the Bellingham community. We have cultivated a great community of artists and audience members alike, so come join us for this years 12 Minutes Max!
