Two Short Nights | 48 Hour Film Challenge Screening

A first chance to experience this year’s 48 Hour Film Challenge creations on the big screen. Armed with only a camera and a toilet roll filmmaking teams across the region were set the task to create something epic and meaningful in just 48 hours. Witness trains in love, small time crooks and one sad Finnish plumber.

About the 48 hour film challenge

The 48 Hour Film Challenge returned in January 2021. All elements of the 2021 challenge could be completed remotely online. This meant that in an exciting change to tradition, teams do not have to be based in Exeter to take part in the challenge. Successful films were shown as part of Two Short Nights Film Festival 2021.


A celebration of our cultural community  | Mon 9 Aug – Sun 15 Aug

Reason to Create is a pop-up festival in which we celebrate and showcase some of the incredible versatility, resilience and creativity of members of our city’s cultural community.

We have thrown our doors open for a week of free, low cost and pay-what-you-like events created by artists from our Creative Hub, that span a range of art-forms in a range of spaces in and around our building. Expect to find theatre shows, comedy, music, film & art, an insight into creative processes, networking events and a vibrant range of exciting, fresh ideas on show.

Inspired by the artists who told us that Exeter Phoenix offered them ‘a reason to create’ over lockdown, we are offering this platform to artists and audiences alike to get a taste of some of what makes the cultural community we share so special.
