Screening events

Every Friday in March

Together with The One Minutes Foundation, the last month we have been calling for digital moving image works 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 ? Can happiness make you unhappy?

We have selected 20 One Minutes, both from the Open Call entries and from the One Minutes archive. They will be screened in 4 sets of 5 One Minute experimental film and video works.

The 5 Minutes on Happiness screening events are part of SEA Foundation’s long-term programme on Art and Sustainability in fold #03 on Happiness. Read more on our programme of Happiness here.

The event will take place on-line on Vimeo, as well as on-site at SEA Foundation’s premises in Tilburg. The links for the international audience to join us and follow the screenings digitally will be published here and on our social media. Please note that the links to the screenings will only be available on the set dates and are valid for the mentioned times (CET) only.
