Long Weekend, Short Films, One Screen
By Brett McKenzie on Aug 30, 2018
Five short films that show just how amazing One Screen can be
Lights camera, action! Last week, the One Club for Creativity announced that One Screen was again open for submissions. For those who don't know, One Screen is our short film festival that celebrates the sweet spot where the advertising and film worlds converge.
The first entry deadline isn't until the end of October, but going into this holiday long weekend, we wanted to showcase our previous Best of Show winners. If you're a filmmaker, this will help you know how high the bar is set year after year. And if you're not a filmmaker? Just kick back and relax, knowing that some of your weekend's "must see viewing" has already been arranged for you.

This BMW Films creation, launched 15 years after their short film "The Hire" completely upended the "branded entertainment" genre, features Clive Owen as the nameless Driver, transporting some very special cargo while on the run from the authorities.

A war to keep the peace. In the small village of Vrontados on the Greek island of Chios, there is unrest. For over a century, parishioners of two Greek Orthodox churches have engaged in a battle on Holy Saturday, firing more than 100,000 homemade rockets at each other’s churches once the sun goes down.

Heroes, villains, legends. Twenty years ago Billy and his Grandad were all of these and more, every Sunday afternoon before tea, in this magnificent, sweeping, suburban epic that celebrates the power of imagination and the bond between generations.

One Screen 2012 Best of Show Winner
Flitting from one harrowing situation to the next, the narrator in the first ever One Screen Best of Show winner can't seem to keep his story straight — until his panicky confusion all makes sense in the end.
One Screen 2019 is now accepting submissions in a variety of categories. The early deadline for submissions is Wednesday, October 31.
