The short film festival of Ireland welcomes short films from all over the world in all genres and types. We're filmmakers and we love sharing, seeing and finding new short films that tell great stories, no matter what the format.
We believe in short films and that the future of narrative content in particular is heading towards much shorter content. With that in mind we wanted to create a festival that will bring the very best of short films from all over the world to Ireland.
Our festival screenings will take place in Filmbase, Dublin, Ireland
