1 minute to save the world - Film Competition

Vi Nguyen

30th November, 2010 is an online film competition that encourages people from all over the world to submit a one minute length film about climate change.

With an aim to raise public awareness of the seriousness of climate change and what can be done to combat it, has evolved from its success last year and harnessed the support of a range of high profile environmental organisations and media giants, such as UNICEF, Sony, Greenpeace, the British Council and WWF.

The submitted films must be entered into one of three climate change categories, with a host of media executives and celebrity eco-activists making up the judging panel. Prizes will be given to the winning filmmakers of each category, which include a range of Sony gadgets, the opportunity to broadcast the winning film internationally and £5000 to be spent on a winning proposal.

Filmmakers from all over the globe and of all age groups are encouraged to take part in this international climate change film effort.

Carl Thompson’s film submission to entitled ‘A Switch Odyssey’, focuses on the message that even in a world ravaged by the consequences of wasted electricity, it only takes one finger to change everything. With the film’s dramatic crescendo nearing its end, Carl shows that it requires a single action, such as turning off the light switch, to contribute to saving the world from climate change.

The competition is now open to all film submissions until the deadline of January 17th, 2011.

Help us keep the Ecologist platform going

Since 2012, the Ecologist has been owned and published by a small UK-based charity called the Resurgence Trust. We work hard to support the kind of independent journalism and comment that we know Ecologist readers enjoy but we need your help to keep going. We do all this on a very small budget with a very small editorial team and so joining the Trust or making a donation will show us you value our work and support the platform which is currently offered as a free service.
