CALL FOR SUBMISSION – Unleash your Creativity!

Like. Share. Comment.  Contemporary society can be characterised by the incessant stream of information we encounter on a daily basis; with every tweet or post, information is communicated in the blink of an eye. We live in a time where time itself is a commodity, where 24 frames can sufficiently express a creator’s messages.

Stitching together series of sequential still images, films create powerful auditory and visual illusions. Popular cinema is now the culture of the masses, and from comedy to drama, the medium unites different realms of the arts. In an age where technology has democratised the creative process, every individual has the potential to be a director, to document and create.

As Andy Warhol once stated, “In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes”. Even 15 minutes is too long now – we only ask for one second of your time. Join the One Second Film Festival. This is the moment for you to stand on top of the world, even if it is only for one second. All qualified submissions will be in the running for the Grand Prize and may be publicly exhibited!

Submission Period: 24 May – 6 August 2017

Please click HERE for submission methods & terms and conditions.


All the approved submitted videos will be showcased on the official Instagram @onesecondfilmfestival and Weibo of One Second Film Festival.

Submissions of the first round will be eligible to be part of the One Second Film Festival Exhibition. Ten finalists will then be shortlisted by the judging panel and invited to join a presentation ceremony to compete for the Grand Prize.

One Second Film Festival is co-organised by KAF and Ye Funa, KAF’s online resident artist.
