#48HrChallenge-Graphic

Galway City of Film worked in partnership with Little Cinema Galway to develop the first 48 Hour Film Making Challenge in Galway. The premise of the challenge is to invite filmmakers to make a film – write, shoot, and edit – in just 48 hours. The project is really quite simple but the challenge is a test of filmmakers’ ability to work together and make a film in only two days.

What follows is a tense and intriguing drama during which an unlikely
relationship is forged between two adversaries.
