The film, by the team Whiffle Powder Productions, tells the heartwarming Christmas tale of a toy fire engine that winds up changing the lives of several people it touches. I caught it during the 48HFP screenings earlier this year, and it was definitely one of the stronger 48 Hour flicks I’ve seen in years, though it wound up coming in second to the equally-amazing horror-musical “La Petite Mort.” “Red” did win Audience Favorite, Best Story.

“Fire Engine Red” is currently running #2 in the world against all other 2nd place finishers in a runners-up bracket that would give the film a second chance to be screened and compete with the city winners for fame and prizes. Full press release on the jump.
