“Although an international event, the Dingle Film Festival remains strongly rooted in Irish soil and has been a vital and energising force in the creation of new films in our own vernacular. The introduction in 2011 of the Físín prize, the first Irish language script competition, has encouraged many filmmakers to develop their films in our beautiful national language, ensuring that it remains a living source of inspiration for this and future generations, and fostering its ongoing relevance in an artistic environment that continuously evolves and innovates.”

 “Fisín has a very special place in my heart as it is without a doubt the reason I have a career as a script writer. It was Fisín that funded An Mhallacht and also got the ball rolling on my first short Rúbaí. Fisín is a great competition for Irish language writers who aren’t established with production companies and it’s a great breeding ground for new and exciting talent. ” Antoin Ó Colla
