The OneMinutesJr is an international, arts-based initiative that gives 12-20 year-old youth, especially those who are underprivileged or marginalised, the opportunity to have their voices heard and to share their ideas, dreams, fascinations, anxieties and viewpoints on the world. The oneminutesjr. process equips the young filmmakers with the fundamental skill of self-expression that is needed to participate fully in society.
The OneMinutesJr holds workshops where the youth are taught basic camera and directing skills, story-telling, teamwork and how to think creatively about issues and representation. Each participant develops his/her own story based on the workshop theme and produces a sixty-second video that is screened at the conclusion of the workshop.
