1st to 3rd September 2017

Clare island Film Festival would like to say very big THANK YOU to everybody that helped make this year’s festival such a success. From everybody on the committee that has been working throughout the year to those who helped out on the weekend itself. Whether you cheered us on physically or virtually it has encouraged us along the way. 

We couldn’t do it without the filmmakers or you the audience so thanks for participating and making it all worthwhile! 

Thanks to Mayo County Council, Sailors Bar Bard Room, Clare Island Lighthouse, Anna at the Mill, Cliara Development staff and to all who have helped in any way and that includes the Audiences.     

We thoroughly enjoyed celebrating our 5th birthday with you all and hope you enjoyed the films and discovered something new if you had the chance to join us.
Looking forward to doing it all again in 2018! 

The countdown is on! We have a great selection of films for you in this our fifth edition of the festival. We continue to celebrate short film and have expanded our feature offering with three great features this year. 

Opening film “The Islands and the Whales” by Mike Day
