2007 COLLABORATION: Big Picture TV

Filminute is delighted to announce a unique collaboration with Big Picture TV, an online video channel that streams solution-oriented "talking heads" of global experts in issues relating to the long-term sustainability of our planet.

Over a 5 year period, Big Picture TV has amassed a comprehensive archive of over 350 videos, totalling some 40 hours of content. Marcus Morrell, founder of Big Picture TV, has jumped at the opportunity to expand the Filminute 2007 Call for Entry by opening up this extraordinary archive to filmmakers interested in using footage to make or produce one-minute films for submission. Going forward, Big Picture TV will also feature one-minute films as a section of the website at

Nelson Mandela, HRH Prince of Wales, Naomi Klein, Bruce Sterling and Nobel Peace Prize Winner Wangari Maathai are some of the names you'll recognize among more than 100 luminaries on the site. Topics discussed range from development, energy and globalisation, to health, politics and the environment.

Filminute anticipates a surge in one-minute films by filmmakers, animators, writers, and creative producers interested in the state of the planet.
