The One Minutes invites artists to contribute one minute long videos. These videos are published in series composed by various curators.

We encourage you to submit your videos and participate in the project!


The One Minutes Foundation produces and distributes One Minute videos from an artistic point of view, providing an international stage for people to create, engage and connect.

One Minutes have a large and broad audience and are shown at (film) festivals, cinemas, museums, art installations, talk shows and (television) programmes.

Every two months, The One Minutes releases a new series of one-minute films exploring our current time in moving images. Museums and cultural organisations around the world subscribe to the series.
