The Lancashire International Film Festival has set up a 100 hour challenge which challenges directors to shoot at lightning speed.

Lancashire International Film Festival Creative Director Ric Michael said: “The competition is aimed at aspiring film makers from Preston who are keen to make a short film.

“The North West is a great place to make and produce films and this festival allows people to meet well known film makers and other like-minded people.

“It is the second year we have run this unusual challenge which only allows for a very short amount of time to produce work and asks the film maker to be creative under pressure; last year we received some impressive entries.”

Entries into the competition will be screened at the Continental Pub on Sunday 14 April as part of the Festival, and the winner gets £100.

The festival runs at the University of Central Lancashire from Friday 12 April to Sunday 14 April.

It will include showings of Phil Hawkins’ The Flying Lesson, Inglebrook Productions’ ‘Roses in Winter’ and an animation called Placebo featuring Bill Nighy.

More details about the event can be found on the Festival website, on Facebook and on Twitter.
