Openscreen Special: Transition

Openscreen @ Mesa, Maison de la Transition

Fostering social change through film? Can it be done? We believe it can and are looking for movies that highlight people and projects that strive to make the world a better place. So, if you have a story that needs to be told, an issue that cries out for deeper analysis or to be viewed from a different perspective, then this event is for you.

Openscreen@Transition is part of the week long series of events and discussions called the “Aktionstage für eine friedliche und nachhaltige Welt” (roughly: “Days for a peaceful and sustainable world”). Our partners at the event are Frères des Hommes, SOS Villages d’Enfants Monde and MESA Maison de la Transition in Esch/Alzette.

Openscreen@Transition is a special event, and as such we are looking for movies that dovetail with the theme.

We hope to see as many of you as possible there to be inspired by the vision of our film-makers or as film contributors out to make the world a better place.

Peace & Love!

What is Openscreen?

In a nutshell...

  • We organise movie screenings that are open to everyone.
  • No curation or selection of films. All film submitted are shown.
  • Our events are not competitions. There are no prizes or juries.
  • Max 20 minute film length
  • No hate or pornography allowed.
  • New exciting venue each time.
  • Free of charge for audience members and film-makers alike.

Background and philosophy...

We're open. Since hosting our first event in 2004, Openscreen has provided a stage for film-makers to experiment and try out new ideas. We set no criteria for the theme, style or genre of the work submitted. These are entirely up to the film maker. What we do provide are exciting venues and the instant feedback of a live audience. As we do not select or curate the work shown at our events, both the audience and the those submitting films can expect to experience the unexpected.

For everyone. Over the years we have screened home-cooked movies by first time film-makers as well as the work of seasoned industry professionals. All this makes for a exciting events where new points of view are expressed and interesting conversations are started between film-makers and the live audience.

Open to all

There are no age or geographical restrictions. Everyone is welcome to submit a movie.

Fun format

Max 20 minutes. All subject matters okay (except hate, discrimination, pornography etc).

Great Venues

Each event is hosted at a new and exciting venue

Not a competition!

We do not give out any prizes or judge the movies shown.
