– a one-minute film festival
Border Dialogues – the Barents Art Triennal is an international art project that aims to mediate and explore questions, responses, experiences and feelings related to the conceptions of borders. The project is organised in different steps with activities such as exhibitions, community projects, texts, workshops and events held in different locations from mid-2005 to mid-2006. The border dialogues project is managed by Pikene på Broen (Kirkenes), Verkligheten (Umeå) and University of Lapland (Rovaniemi).
The One-Minute Film festival contains films gathered from around the world – all based on the theme of borders. The 56 participating film-makers have interpreted the theme from different angles and the films deal with various questions, including language, geographical borders and personal ones, among others.
The films make up a loop of 56 minutes and will be screened continuously between 6–10 p.m. on Saturday 26th November at Platform. On the same day they will be shown at Gallery Verkligheten in Umeå, and at Generator in Dundee, Scotland.
