Friends of the Earth ran a competition earlier this year inviting amateur and professional film makers to submit a one-minute long film to their One-Minute with Meaning Competition. Now all the submissions are in, and in addition to the Best Green Film award that is being judged by a panel of experts including Oscar-winning David Puttnam and film producer Andrew MacDonald, there is going to be an award for the People’s Choice. Vote now!
Andrew Macdonald, whose credits include Trainspotting and 28 Days Later, said:
“There’s a really high calibre of entries and the films in Friends of the Earth’s competition are incredibly imaginative. The two that stand out for me are Road Trip, about two kids playing the roles of nature and people who are fighting in the back of a car, which is very amusing, along with a British film called cHair which is about a man who thinks fibreglass can be replaced with human hair."
He may be the expert, but here’s one that I like:
We’ll be featuring one of the films every day until voting for the “People’s Choice Award” closes on the 30th September 2007.
