10 Minute Hub: A tale of the sea * Onze natuur * Foster
August 25 @ 19:30 – 21:30
The 10 Minute Challenge is a new film track of the Queer Film Festival Utrecht. It was set up to give young starting filmmakers an opportunity and platform. The challenge consists of the assignment to make a short LGBTQI+ film about the Utrecht 900 years theme ‘City without walls’ with a quirky perspective on celebrating queerness and Utrecht.
In total 9 talented makers submitted a 10 minute film. Spread over four days (23 to 26 August), each film team will get the chance to introduce and show their film to all Utrechters and Utrechters in the 10 Minute Hub in the Vechtclub XL.
An expert jury will judge the nine films and on 28 August the winner of this first 10 Minute Challenge will be announced at Villa Concordia.

Foster (NL / 2021 / 12 min/ Jordi Wijnalda)
