1. What's the Fast Forward Film Festival?
----------------------------------------------------

We offer pre-registered groups of filmmakers (videomakers, actually) a chance to compete and make three minute movies overnight. We give the topic, you make the movie, we watch them all the next night and there's a high five for everyone who finishes. High fives are optional. www.fastforwardireland.com



----------------------------------------------------
2. Why and Who? Wha'? 24 hours???
----------------------------------------------------

Why? Because it is fun.

Who comes up with stuff like this? Sean and Atom are two mad eejits in Chicago who have been running this type of thing for a couple of years. They are good people and you can find out more about their operation at this address: www.fastforwardfilmfest.com. We thought it was high time Ireland got in on the act.

Who are "We"? "We" are mainly Andrew McAvinchey in Dublin, Thomas Yun, Sean and Atom in Chicago and the Renegade Arts Collective/Octopussy, who are all over the place. http://renegadearts.org

24 hours??? Yes. 24 hours.
