Calling all filmmakers - 10 years of TEDxAmsterdam through your lens

Friday 13 July 2018

On 29 November, TEDxAmsterdam celebrates its tenth anniversary! Birthdays are always a nice occasion to reflect, but also an opportunity to ponder the future. To help us look back on the life-changing, inspiring and memorable journey we’ve had so far, we are inviting all creatives and filmmakers – be it students, accomplished directors or avid film hobbyists – to capture their view of 10 years of TEDxAmsterdam through their lens!

Create a concept worth sharing

Get your creative juices flowing! What do you think of when you hear TEDxAmsterdam, 10 years, past, future? Whatever it is, create a concept for a short film, animation or documentary that will bring it to life!

The best concepts will be selected by, and produced with the help of our partner, online video agency Level V! Think real Hollywood style support: script supervision, content guidance, film equipment, filming and post-production facilities!

The final output will be shared with the Level V and TEDxAmsterdam network, giving your creative idea a platform! It’ll be like singing in front of a big audience at the birthday bash of the year!

How to take part

Send us your concept by 17 August in any format that supports your idea best (words, pictures, video…) via this form. Make sure to provide as much detail as possible, and please add a link in the form to any images, videos or additional material you wish to include.  

In the first week of September you will hear from us about whether your concept made the cut and will get produced! The results will be premiered on 15 November at A’DAM & Co, a private members' club on the 18th floor of the A'DAM Toren in Amsterdam Noord – a true Hollywood style setting!

The films will also be shown at this year’s TEDxAmsterdam event on 29 November at the Stadsschouwburg.

What are you waiting for?!

Join us in celebrating 10 years of TEDxAmsterdam; 10 years of ideas, stories, tears and laughter, and of course…10 years of ideas worth spreading!
