What is the One Minute Film Program?

The One Minute Film Program is an outreach initiative which provides people who have little or no filmmaking experience with the opportunity to create their first one-minute film.

Through the program participants attend a series of workshops and are provided with all the equipment and supplies necessary to make a film. Each participant will also be matched with an experienced filmmaker as his/her mentor to offer help throughout the process. Most importantly they are welcomed into the community of supportive  independent filmmakers that make up AFCOOP.

Anyone interested in applying to the One Minute Film Program is welcome to attend one of our information sessions. This is a great chance to learn more about the program, view examples of films made through the program, and get application tips. Info sessions for the 2012 program will be held in early January, 2012.
