Shanghai International Film Festival is the only international film festival in China and one of fifteen competitive feature film festivals accredited by FIAPF. 2017 marked the first year to include short films in the nine-day program. The short film Call for Entries attracted over 3300 submissions from around the world. The Festival Committee revealed, there are altogether 23 short films officially selected out of 3300 submissions.

Cashell Horgan said, “It’s been a fantastic journey for this short film since 2016 finding audiences and receiving the accolades that the crew and cast truly deserve for delivering this story which was very challenging on the budget I think Shanghai is wonderful opportunity to reach even greater audiences while also bring due attention to the talents in the film and also the rich variety of Irish shorts that are been made by filmmakers in Ireland".

'The Clockmaker’s Dream' is a fantasy/art-house live-action film directed by multi-award winner Cashell Horgan, starring Joe Mullins (Pilgrim Hill), and is narrated by Jared Harris (The Crown).
