It feels like I've been getting more shambolic each year (peaking with delivering the wrong version last year, but at least it was late) so this time I guess either I won't deliver at all, or I'll accidentally deliver a Harry Potter movie or something.

You just sent me to the rules page. 5mins! Love it.
So many films that are longer could be/should be shorter.
Certainly puts the pressure on

Yikes! That'll catch a lot of people out! Writing a <5 minute film is a lot more difficult than writing a <7 minute film. The last 3 years I've based the running time completely off my instinct so I'll have to do some mental rebooting this year.

I'd prefer 7 minutes to 5 minutes actually I'd prefer 8 minutes but I guess it's not a total loss. I've gone and looked at my previous 2 films and it wouldn't be much of an effort to make them qualify for the new time limit.
At least it's not 3 minutes like Rode Reel where I'm having to have a sub 5 second title card at the end for credits.
