Laughed like a drain!

As always, the 90 Minutes or Less Film Fest deliver insightful, lighthearted and humour-filled episodes filled with fascinating observations. The Edgar Wright episode in particular gave me a huge list of films to add to the watchlist, and the chemistry between the filmmaker and host Sam is a joy to listen to. Like catching up with old mates with every episode. Highly recommended!

Love the pod!

An ingenius concept which I could not recommend highly enough. Films have, more than often, no right being more than 2 hours long, yet studios believe the audiences want this! Chuck in ads and trailers and you have one sore bum!

Sam’s choice of films is diverse, enjoyable and guests of the highest calibre. Great pod!

Great concept, well produced

In an age of summer blockbusters all lasting 3hrs + this festival recognises the runtime goal ALL film makers should aspire to. Shinning a light on the familiar and some must see hidden gems with a short runtime, the selection of guests on the pod are always well prepped to talk about the passion they have for their choice. Lovely stuff.
