Extended Submissions Deadline for Kerry Film Festival Closes – Friday July 20th
18 Jul 2018 : Nathan Griffin
The extended submission deadline for this year’s Kerry Film Festival will close on Friday, July 20th.

Kerry Film Festival, which takes place from 17th to 21st October, is now inviting entries for its short film competition in the following categories:

BEST INTERNATIONAL NARRATIVE SHORT 
BEST IRISH NARRATIVE SHORT 
BEST DOCUMENTARY SHORT 
BEST STUDENT SHORT 
BEST ORIGINAL SCORE 
BEST OF KERRY 
BEST ANIMATION

This year, Kerry Film Festival has also opened up entries to new categories for ‘Music Video’ & ‘Advertising’.

The feature film category is also open to projects that are 60 minutes and over, while short films must be no longer than 20 minutes.

The deadline for open submissions is: July 20th, 2018   

KFF has previously featured successful shorts such as the Oscar® short-listed “Head over Heels” in 2012 and the 2014 Oscar® winner “Mr Hublot” and 2016 Oscar® winner "STUTTERER". Three short films that screened at KFF in 2017 are nominated for the IFTA awards in 2018. 'The Silent Child' which screened at KFF17 won the short narrative film category at the 2018 Oscar® ceremony.

Emerging filmmakers are at the core of the Kerry Film Festival programme, with the short film competition geared towards showcasing their work and bringing it to a wider audience both at home and throughout a growing network of partner festivals across the globe.

Filmmakers will have the chance for their work to be seen by a prestigious panel of adjudicators which has in recent years included Academy Award Nominated Fodhla Cronin O'Reilly, Academy Award winner Benjamin Cleary, Sundance Grand Jury prize winner, Jim Cummings, Directors Lenny Abrahamson and Paul Greengrass and Producer Finola Dwyer.
