One Minute to Save the World Event

3rd October 2019

The One Minute to Save the World short filmmaking competition was open to young filmmakers aged 19 and under. Organised in conjunction with the Children’s Media Conference, we asked young people to make a one minute film that’s authentic to them, about something they believe in, and to make us think.

PQATV invited the 15 young finalists to watch their work on the big screen. The event was attended by members of the CMC advisory committee along with the CMC’s Editorial Director Greg Childs who were on hand to offer career advise to the young creatives.

The screening was followed by the awards announcement which saw Limitless by Annette Hannah pick up the top prize. Runner Up films included Children’s Right, directed by Tilly Mae Jones, It’s Not To Late, directed by Will Stogden, The Choice, directed by Louie Fellows & Amy Newman and You Are Not Alone, directed by Jessica Devonald, Sofia Piletto, Katharine Smallacombe Riley, Anna Tresigne, Rhea Sahib & Stella Parkinson. We also invited two of this year’s Changemakers, Noga Levy-Rapoport and Brandon Relph, to select their winning film which was awarded to Nature’s Child by Eden Quine-Taylor. 

Listen to the finalists speak about what moved them to make the film they did, what they learned from the process and how young people can make a difference in the video below:
