About The Fingal Film & Arts Festival

The Fingal Film & Arts Festival was launched in 2012. It is a new entity that offers a platform encouraging and promoting the works of local film community and National, International emerging filmmakers to showcase their work in an environment where they have access to experienced industry professionals. We provide workshops. Fingal Film Festival, the team have decided to revamp its annual format to raise a greater awareness of independent films, by attracting other festival goers that are usually drawn to live music or comedy events.Although the festival has seen a significant audience growth over the last few years, we believe it is our responsibility as festival organisers to ensure we reinvent ourselves, by attracting larger audiences with a bigger venue this year , ensuring our participating filmmakers’ work is exposed to a wider demographic, says Festival Founder Liz Kenny.It is imperative we make the festival more appealing to non-filmgoers by holding an event that resonates with all ages. We believe the “Film Festival” themed event on its own alienates an audience, as they feel it’s for experienced filmmakers and filmgoers alike, says Creative Director Dave Byrne. In fact, it’s the opposite. Everybody loves film and our aim is to expose audiences to the Independent film concept, whilst offering a fun packed weekend. A full schedule of events will be rolled out in the coming months and promises to attract audiences from all over Ireland and abroad.As the festival is now open for submissions, the organisers are encouraging filmmakers from Fingal and beyond to submit their films for consideration, as this year will be one of the biggest Independent Film Festival events of 2017.

Screenings /Workshops programmes throughout the three day festival event every year. At least 25% of our festival schedule is dedicated to Foreign films, which broadens the film culture experience to all who attend the screenings in Fingal during the festivals duration in August  every year. Submissions open every year from Dec until June go online to submit your films, International, Animation, Short Films, Student Films, Documentary, Scannan Gaeilge Is Fearr  Feature films all welcome.
