British filmmaker Charlie Lyne has submitted a 607-minute film of paint drying to the British Board of Film Classification.
Lyne crowd-funded the project after visiting a BBFC open day and feeling that filmmakers had become "resigned" to the power of the board.
Lyne submitted the film, titled "Paint Drying", to the BBFC on Monday. He stated in a Reddit AMA that the board will watch the film over the next two days and reply with a classification within the next few weeks.
According to his AMA, Lyne is keen to screen the film but is awaiting the board's classification before making final plans. The film made a brief cameo at the end of an episode of Newsnight earlier this month.
