Online Short Film Competion 2020 - Update

Given the current Covid-19 situation, this year's festival will be moving online. While all talks and feature screenings have been cancelled, our short film competition will be available online from August 13th - 16th. The films will be available through our website to audiences in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland and will be free of charge. We look forward to sharing this year's programme of amazing shorts with you and we hope to return to a full live event in 2021.


Where Can I Watch The Films?

You can view the films through our online platform which will be available to browse from August 10th.

When Can I View Them?

You can browse the films through our online platform from August 10th. The screenings begin on August 13th with the first collection Student Shorts, followed by Programmes 1 - 12 on August 14th and Programmes 13 - 24 on August 15th. Each collection is available from 10 am to 10 pm.

Can I Watch The Films Outside Of Ireland?

Unfortunately no, the films will be geo-locked to audiences in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland only ( note - due to screening restrictions some films may not be available to audiences in Northern Ireland.)

How Much Does It Cost?

Nothing! The entire weekend of films is free! Simply sign up through our online platform and "rent" the films you want to watch for free. You can rent entire programmes or individual films.
