The Guth Gafa International Documentary Film Festival is seeking submissions from Irish filmmakers of feature documentaries for their 6th annual event in Gortahork, County Donegal, which will take place from the 10th to the 14th June.
Guth Gafa organisers are currently accepting submissions of feature docs in Irish or English completed after 1st January 2009 for this year’s event. The deadline for submissions is 8th April and filmmakers are invited to send DVD screeners of their films to the Festival office before that date.
Applicants are advised that festival organisers are particularly interested in films that fit into their regular human rights, social action and environmental themes, and also welcome films that will play well to regional Gaeltacht audiences. There are no premiere requirements for screening at Guth Gafa, but films that have already been broadcast on Irish television will only be considered in exceptional circumstances. Filmmakers whose films have been broadcast are requested to contact the Festival office before submitting.
