About Us

Founded in 2014, and growing to a weekend festival in 2017, The Still Voices Short Film Festival has established itself as one of Ireland's premier short film festivals. Based in Ballymahon, Co. Longford this year's festival takes place from August 15th-18th.

Now in its fifth year, Still Voices continues to grow from strength to strength. What started out as a small showcase for local filmmakers, has grown to a weekend festival screening the best of both Irish and international short films.

In addition to the short film competition, there will also be exciting panel discussions, Q&As, feature films and workshops for children and adults alike, all of which will make it an enjoyable weekend for filmmakers, film-lovers, and everyone in between.
