Galway City of Film are inviting Filmmakers / Film Enthusiasts to make a one-minute HD film, based on any subject or any story. The best 30 x 1 minute films will be selected by a panel of judges and they will be screened at a special public event at the Galway Film Fleadh 2016. The Galway Film Fleadh runs from July 5th to 10th.

This year, there are three awards which are €500 for the Best Film and €300 and €200 for Runners-up. The winning films will be available to watch on the websites of all organisations involved for some time after the Festival. This is a great opportunity to get your work seen by an audience at this international festival. Entry to this competition is free! All genres are welcome including documentary, live action, art-house and animation.

Last year’s One Minute Film Festival included films from around the world, with 2 sold out screenings. The winner was the fantastic  ‘Luke and Roger’, directed by Kevin O’ Brien. It examined the future of robotic childcare and its pitfalls! Link: https://vimeo.com/132037845
