Encounters 0117 Challenge Comes up Trumps for Bristol

The gauntlet laid down before film makers by the Encounters 0117 challenge was straightforward; make a short film about the city of Bristol searching the newly opened M Shed museum for inspiration.  The challenge for entrants was for the film to have no more than 2 minutes 30 seconds running time, and teams had just 117 hours to devise, script, film, edit and complete their project.  I was fortunate enough to be invited to a special screening held on Friday 24th June at the M Shed, of all the submissions, so I could see for myself, along with others, how these imaginative film makers rose to the challenge and captured the essence of Bristol.
