The annual festival has revamped this year to attract wider audiences with the inclusion of live music, outdoor screenings and comedy in a new Summer format running on August 11th and 12th in Swords Castle.

This year’s format change has been decided upon in order to raise a greater awareness of independent films.

Submissions are now open in the following categories:

  • Best Fingal Newcomer
  • Best Animation
  •  Best Short Film
  • Best Student
  • Best Documentary
  • Best International
  • Scannan Gaeilge Is Fearr
  • Outstanding Achievement in Media

Liz Kenny, Festival Founder:
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.”

Dave Byrne, Creative Director:
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. 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.”
