One Screen is part of The One Club for Creativity, the global non-profit organization celebrating creative excellence in advertising and design. 

The fast-growing global festival focuses on all forms and aspects of short films--narrative fiction, comedy, passion projects, commercials, branded content, music videos, spec work, animation, sound, title sequences, etc.--and has a mission to celebrate and award filmmakers from around the world working in both the film and ad industries with no limitation and total artistic freedom, all on one screen.  

In addition to awarding work in specific genre categories, One Screen expands this year to also recognize creative excellence by region with best-of awards for Asia-Pacific, Europe, Latin America, North America and Middle East-North Africa.
