British Council and UNICEF this year organized training session titled Oneminutes JR within the British Film Spring Festival.
This is part of an international project where a group of young people learned how to make professional short films on topics related to the social protection and inclusion of children. The subject of the workshop in Azerbaijan was ‘Ability is Limitless’. Young people with sight and hearing impairments, and children from disadvantaged backgrounds had a unique opportunity to have their voices heard by a broad audience. The 3 videos which got the highest number of ‘Likes' on the British Council Azerbaijan Facebook page were selected as winners, and their films will be screened before each film during the British Film Spring.
British Film Spring offers a remarkable chance to see a collection of top British films from the past few years.
