On the green agenda


The French Film Festival UK continues its collaboration with the Paris-based Mobile Film Festival by focussing on a selection of short films available to view online. The theme #ACT NOW ON CLIMATE CHANGE illuminates the concerns of the Cop26 Conference in Glasgow. More than 800 budding filmmakers from 91 countries responded to the call by submitting shorts of just one minute long and shot on mobile phones or tablets.


The #ACT NOW ON CLIMATE CHANGE films inspired students from Edinburgh College of Art to produce posters to evoke the themes and here are two of the winning designs: Scream by Bryce Starks-Browning  and Wallet by Yennnie Wong (winner of the audience award).

Other winners were: Switch by Marley Theobald and Boribanan by Cammy Boyle.

Bruno Smadja, founder of the Mobile Film Festival, says: “The brief is always the same – one minute, one mobile, one film: one mobile to make it the most accessible possible, to get rid of every financial constraint to make a film, so everybody can participate. But not everybody can make a good film, so we have to be very selective. That’s why you have to be a very good storyteller to work on that.” The ideas speak to current issues, encouraging the viewer to reconsider every action they take, from where they throw their rubbish to the amount of clothes they buy or conserving water.
