UNICEF’s final oneminutesjr. workshop sponsored by the Dubai International Film Festival took place 20-24 February in Cairo, Egypt. The workshop, generously hosted by the Goethe Institute, drew 18 participants from in and around Cairo to learn basic camera skills and create stories based on the theme “Daily Life.”

The kids ranged in age from 12 to 19 and had various levels of video experience – some had made films before, while others had never held a camera. They were asked at the beginning of the workshop to develop ideas about daily life – things they see everyday, dreams and goals them have for themselves, aspects of their lives. Alberto de Michelle and Jennifer Petterson, two artists from Amsterdam who represented the One Minutes Foundation, taught the participants about the camera, story development and production skills. Each participants created, shot and edited their one minute story with the help of the artists.

The 18 final films were shown at a screening at the Goethe Institute which was well attended by parents, friends and the community, including members of the Egyptian Radio and Television Union. Parents and participants stood up to give testimonials on their experiences and the impact of the workshop.
