The installation is comprised of 70 videos lasting 30 seconds each. Each video is made by a different artist, some of them students from the various art schools and some established names, alongside ammeter film making enthusiasts. The short films are shot in different styles but all center on the this years theme of ‘Beyond Borders’.

The films will be projected on to the face of the Basilica every evening from 7pm to 12am from tomorrow till the end of December.
