The Norn Iron Film Festival is a non-profit short film festival set up to showcase both local and international talent to raise money for an amazing cause.

All the proceeds including the entry fee and ticket costs will be going to charity.

This year we are raising money for the Marie Curie Hospice in Belfast. It costs £6,150 a day to run the hospice. They rely on the support of local people to keep their doors open, so we'd love you to help us support this amazing charity while showcasing the best short film entries.

In 2022 the Norn Iron short film festival will be taking place in August in the Belfast area.

The ethos of this festival is to celebrate creative talent while bringing the community closer together.

    We were delighted our short film 'Between the Lines' was selected for the festival! We couldn't make it along sadly but the communication was great and it was brilliant being part of an event which raised money for such an important cause.

    Would certainly submit again in the future!
