The Little Cinema & Galway City of Film has opened applications for the 2022 Little Cinema & Galway City of Film 48 Hour Challenge, taking place on 18th - 21st August 2022.

This is the sixth iteration of the 48 Hour Challenge and another chance for filmmaking teams from around the country to come to Galway City & County to test their filmmaking skills. Up to 10 teams of between 4-10 people will take part in the Challenge, with the task of writing, shooting, and editing a 5-minute film in just 48 Hours. Applications will remain open until 5pm on Wednesday, 10th August.

Each team will have to incorporate an assigned line, prop, and genre into their films, with the added rule of also including a specific shot type. A team of industry experts will choose the Best Film, which will win the top prize of €500, a TG4 sponsored hoodie for each team member, and a place for the film at the Galway Film Fleadh 2023.  There will also be awards for Best Cinematography, Best Editing, Best Special Effects, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Use of Line, Best Use of Prop, Best Music Score, and an Audience Award.

The 48 Hour Challenge has teamed up with Snoozles Hostel Galway to arrange a discount for accommodation for those travelling to Galway to take part as filmmakers for the Challenge. Those who need accommodation for the Challenge can indicate that in the application form.

The Rules and Guidelines are available here, and the online application form can be found here.  Entry is free with a deposit of €50 taken from each team to confirm their place once they have filled out the application form.

The Challenge will Launch on Thursday, August 18th at 7pm in the Portershed, where each team taking part will introduce themselves and find out their line, prop, genre, and shot to be incorporated. The Portershed will also host the event over the weekend with hot desks provided to those who need editing spaces.
