The challenge which will launch on Thursday June 15th, invites filmmakers to Galway City to make a film, including the writing, shoot and edit, in just two days.
The challenge is a test of filmmakers’ wits, ingenuity and ability to work together and make a film in just two days.
The 48 Hour challenge will launch in the Cornstore at the Galway 2020 European Capital of Culture offices, where filmmaking teams will meet and register for the weekend. Filmmaking will commence on Friday 16th June and finish on the afternoon of Sunday 18th.
Galway’s Town Hall Theatre will host a special free screening of all completed films on Sunday evening where filmmakers have an opportunity to win a cash prize of €500.
Full information on the 48 Hour Challenge and details of registration will be announced shortly but for now please save the dates of June 15th-18th 2017 as places will be limited.
