Dingle International Film Festival is delighted to announce that it is now open for submissions from short film makers.

Each year Dingle IFF receives hundreds of submissions from short filmmakers, from which it will select its prestigious Shorts Programmes. Slots in these programmes are coveted and not easy to come by. The adjudication process for films submitted is rigorous, but filmmakers who submit can be confident that their work is seen by not only the Festival Director, Maurice Galway but also his carefully selected fellow adjudicators. In the past these adjudicators have included successful film critic John Maguire and Soho House’s highly regarded Mandy Kean.

This is what makes getting your Short accepted into Dingle IFF something that every Short filmmaker who is serious about their craft should aspire to.

Dingle IFF prides itself too on how well it looks after its filmmakers and the exhibition of their film. Accepted Short filmmakers can expect to be given access to the full Festival Programme. Their work will be exhibited in the unique St. James’ Church with full HD facilitates.

As well as running a full and dynamic programme of screenings, Dingle IFF also hosts our unique Pow Wow event out on the beautiful Dingle Peninsula. Now in its third year, the Pow Wow event brings together industry experts and upcoming filmmakers together in a symbiotic platform where stories, expertise, advice and experiences are shared. Through the Chinwag and Banter sessions upcoming filmmakers may chat informally to film and TV directors, writers, actors and editors. All selected short filmmakers are given the opportunity to book their place at Pow Wow for free.

It’s the audience who decide the best short at our festival, the winner is announced at the close of the festival.
