Paint Drying is a 2016 British feature film directed and produced by Charlie Lyne. The film is about paint on a wall drying, lasting for 10 hours and 7 minutes.[1] The film was created by Charlie Lyne in order to force the BBFC to have to watch all 10 hours to give the film an age rating classification.[2]


Charlie Lyne started a Kickstarter page in order to rise money to make the film as long as possible. The film raised over £5,900 from 686 backers, and was released on January 26, 2016.[2][3]
