The International Mini Film Festival continues to grow in poularity with an impressive total of seven countries represented in the 2016 Festival. The entries were shown on the big screen and judged at Mini 57 in Kingsport, Tennessee, USA in October. The event was organised by Classic Minis United.
The audience was entertained with classic Mini stories, artistic videos, club videos, and some beautiful scenery from around the world. Mike Guido from CMU exclaimed: “Every entry was a winner in its own way. They shared their
love of the Mini in parts of the world that most of us will never get to visit. At the end of the show, three winners were chosen through ballot voting. The winning videos will be shown during the 2017 IMM in Ireland. You can find out more about the club and the film festival at www.classicminis.org.
