The Short Shorts scheme enables the production of 3-minute short films which, play before mainstream theatrical releases, which showcase the talents of the Irish film industry to wider audiences.

Director/producer team Sydney Padua and Barry O'Donoghue, who previously worked together at Warners Bros, have produced ‘Agriculture Report’, an animated comedy about the effect that the media has on its listeners.

Other animated shorts include Declan DeBarra’s ‘Nun’s Fight Club’, a mockumentary about nuns who set up their own version of fight club in their basement, produced by animation company Cartoon Saloon. Cartoon Saloon are also producing ‘Couch Potato’, directed by Tomm Moore.
