BanterFlix has launched our first ever short film festival, one dedicated to horror cinema in all its different forms.

Irish cinema has always had a rich association with horror, so we want our short fIlm Festival to be a platform for both fledgeling filmmakers and more established directors from across the island of Ireland to showcase their work on a big screen.
