A celebration of films under 90 minutes



Louise Owen and Sam Clements are a wife and husband team who love movies.

We adore having access to so many films on streaming services; the wealth of choice can make it hard to decide what to watch. The decision about to what to watch often comes down to what we can actually fit in to our spare time – and inevitably shorter movies get watched over their longer siblings.

We wanted to create a place where people can share their love of the shorter films and build up our own list of titles that fit the criteria. The 90 Minutes Or Less Film Festival is that list.

Each episode we invite a guest to present their choice at our fictional film festival, chat about why they’ve selected that title and how they’d present it to an audience in the cinema on the night.

The show started in September 2018. We make it in our spare time around our full-time jobs.

The podcast was included as “one to listen to” on the podcast page of the December issue of Film Stories magazine.

The podcast is available to listen to on iTunes, Spotify or your podcatcher of choice.
