The results

The One Minutes Jr. organises about fifteen filmmaking workshops a year around the world. Professional filmmakers teach the basics of filmmaking to a group of youngsters. But even of more importance is that the youngsters gain a tool to express themselves.

The result of the workshop is a collection of One Minute films, which give us an exceptional and intimate look into their lives. These stories are honest and unfiltered. Some of them deal with problems in the local country or village, like the circumstances in a school for blind children in Albania.
Some of them show a personal dream, like the wish to take care of the family or to become a doctor in order to help others.

Please see the nominated films on: Youtube.

During the month of November, the series will tour museums and cultural organisations with a subscription to The One Minutes Series. The One Minutes is a global network devoted to the moving image.

Samenvatting in het Nederlands

Ook dit jaar verblijven eind november 15 genomineerde jongeren van The One Minutes Jr. bij WOW. De jongeren komen van over de hele wereld en hebben tijdens workshops van The One Minutes en Unicef in hun eigen land allerlei filmtechnieken geleerd en filmpjes gemaakt, en daarmee een tool aangereikt gekregen om zich te uiten.

Gedurende hun verblijf bij WOW wordt in Museum Hilversum een expositie over het project geopend (Displayground) en wordt in VondelCS de winnaar van de Tommy Award uitgereikt. Bij WOW krijgen ze op zaterdag en zondag een masterclass aangeboden waarin ieder een filmpje in of rondom WOW maakt. Deze korte filmpjes zullen we zondagavond 27 november tonen tijdens de feestelijke afsluiting van The One Minutes Jr. 2016. Iedereen is welkom om te komen kijken en meer te leren over dit mooie project van The One Minutes!
