This special project provides a unique opportunity for talented Galway filmmakers to showcase their work and celebrate the unique merits of Galway city and county, and we hope to attract work from both established professionals and a new wave of talented filmmakers.”

This unique opportunity challenges filmmakers to develop an inventive and imaginative film in just one minute, providing a stellar platform for both budding and established filmmakers.

This enables communities to make their own event on Culture Night.
