Open Call

One Minute on Happiness

We are looking for One Minute digital moving image submissions by artists and visual storytellers on the theme of happiness. What does happiness look like and what power does it hold? Is it something personal or rather collective? Can happiness be integrated into future politics or in sustainability for example? Can happiness make you unhappy?

This open call is for artists and filmmakers who reinvent and explore new approaches regarding the concept of Happiness.

What are you applying for?

20 One Minutes will be selected for four screening events, in March/April 2022. The sets will be shown on a live screen at SEA Foundation and parallel online via Vimeo. The events are promoted through the social media platforms of SEA Foundation and The One Minutes Foundation.

The screening of One Minute on Happiness is part of SEA Foundation’s long-term programme on Art and Sustainability, that features four-month themes called ‘folds’. The previous folds have been on Empathy, on Commons, and the current one is fold #03 on Happiness. Read more on our programme of Happiness here.
