Cannes to screen San Antonio film
San Antonio Business Journal - by W. Scott Bailey

Film Classics Productions says its award-winning short film, “Four Minutes Till The End,” has been selected to screen at the Cannes Film Festival in May.

The science-fiction thriller was written and directed by Bryan Ortiz, who formed Film Classics in 2006 while attending the University of the Incarnate Word. It was produced by Michael Druck.

The movie has already won a series of awards. It was screened at Filmapalooza, the annual festival for the 48 Hour Film Project, held at the Miami International Film Festival.

“When we were shooting Four Minutes, we were just trying to make the best film we could make in the time we had,” Ortiz explains. “None of us ever imagined that we’d have a chance to screen it at one of the biggest film festivals in the world, so this is a huge honor for us.”

“Four Minutes Till The End” is one of 14 films selected by the 48 Hour Film Project to screen in Cannes as part of the Short Film Corner program.

“We’re honored that Bryan will be in Cannes to represent our film and the 48 Hour Film Project,” Druck says. “We hope that this opportunity will open doors for other filmmakers in our community, and that San Antonio will continue to flourish in the Cannes Film Festival.
