51 minutes about Human Rights

Posted Wednesday 21 Nov 2018

The rules are very simple for this international film festival: you film one film that lasts for one minute, using one mobile. This year's theme for the Mobile Film Festival was #StandUp4HumanRights and 51 films from 19 countries were selected as finalists. This is such a great opportunity for filmmakers of all stages, and there were some fabulous, moving very short films here, but no-one from New Zealand entered! Have a look at the finalists and hopefully they inspire you to enter next year!
