Can you capture the spirit of Europe in just one minute? To encourage young people to take an interest in the European Union, the EPP Group of the Committee of the Regions (don't ask me, just keep reading) is inviting all "young Europeans" to create a one-minute short. The theme should be "how to create a better environment." The top three filmmakers will win cash prizes and a trip to Brussels to see their films screened in the European Parliament in October. How cool is that? But hurry hurry: the deadline is June 15, 2009. Go towww.eppcompetition.eu for details and examples. Below you can watch one that I liked: sweet, simple and to the point.
