Got a minute? Or 25 of them? Then visit filminute.com through October 31 to view the 25 entries – from 18 countries — for the world’s best “ultrashort” film.

The UK leads this year’s list with four entries, followed by France with three, and three countries (Argentina, Iran, Sweden) with two each.

The films are offered in alphabetical order, from Baby (Diana Dumitrescu, UK) to White Words (Mohammed Abdeen, Iraq/Syria). Here are those two films:
