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.

BangeRicky (ScaredyCat) is about Ricky, a student who is afraid to find herself. Her fears appear to become reality when she gets surprised at a house party. BangeRicky is a short drama film about facing your fears, being queer and finding yourself
10 minute: Schatje (NL / 2022 / 10 min / Tonnie Heijdra)
On a yellow bicycle, with a small orange flag on the back, Schatje is looking for a hidden treasure. But finding your way when you’re a little lost yourself, is easier said than done. In this absurdist quest for the way, a treasure, identity and gender, we are taken into the perception of someone who feels differently on the inside than how the outside world perceives them.
