Kerry Film Festival 2015 now open for submissions
09 Apr 2015 : Seán Brosnan
2015 festival will take place from 21st to 25th October
The Kerry Film Festival, which takes place from 21st to 25th October, is now inviting entries for its short film competition in categories such as Best Narrative, Best Documentary, Best Animated Film, and Best Original Score.

KFF has previously featured successful shorts such as the Oscar short-listed ‘Head over Heels’ in 2012 and the 2014 Oscar winner ‘Mr Hublot’.

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.

KFF will once again include the category for Best Original Score stating that Film music is a critical part of the storytelling and is often the most memorable element of a film, so important an element in fact that there will be a number of satellite activities focusing on film scores at this year’s festival.

Filmmakers have the chance for their work to be seen by a panel of adjudicators which has in recent years included leading lights such as Richard Baneham who is an Academy Award and BAFTA winning Animator, ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ Screenwriter Mark Bomback, Directors Lenny Abrahamson and Paul Greengrass, and Producer Finola Dwyer.

KFF works to promote the best in filmmaking, endorsing the short film as a significant film genre and assigning the short equal status to the feature. As credit for its efforts in this regard, Kerry Film Festival is listed as the Best Short Film Festival in Ireland and one of the top in the world by ifilmfestapp.com.

With an early bird deadline of 25th May and a final closing date for submissions to the 2015 competition on 25th July, there’s plenty of time to send your film. Check out www.kerryfilmfestival.com for full details on how to submit your entry.
