Celebrate Irish Film and our Island with us from 31st August to 2nd September 2018

We are delighted to share some our fabulous programme for this year’s event with you! The full programme will be added to this website very soon.

Thank you to all who submitted work and sorry we can’t fit you all in! The high quality of the work this year has made the selection process difficult. We are small and beautiful like your shorts and we look forward to celebrating with you all too.

This year as well as great films we have a host of great people joining us to share with you, the audience, their motivations and methods behind the films you will see. We will run a series of relaxed Q&A’s over the event.
