Open Call for Fingal Film Festival 2015

Only a few days into 2015 and the wonderful team at Fingal Film Festival kick the year off with the opening of their 2015 submissions. Monday the 19th of January sees the beginning of the submission process for the fourth instalment of Fingal Film Festival’s annual  event, which will take place during the month of September 2015, venue to be confirmed in the coming months.

The Festival team are preparing for what promises to be the best year so far with bigger awards, a host of amazing guest speakers and a load of other surprises that will be announced, as the team roll out its full schedule in the coming months.Last year we had the most successful festival in 2014 since its inception, seeing bigger screen and workshop attendances, proving that the Fingal Film Festival is the best Independent Festival to have your work seen by large audiences says Liz Kenny, the Festivals Managing Director.This year will see a similar event structure to previous years, but with a few new surprises. The team are working hard to give Independent Filmmakers a whole new Film Festival experience this year and promises to make 2015 a year to remember.

The standard of films from emerging Irish Filmmakers last year was amazing, we hope that trend continues into 2015. We are doing a lot of other work behind the scenes to ensure the films of emerging filmmakers are viewed by a wider audience, beyond the festival programme says Dave Byrne, Creative Director. We hope to be in a position to announce these plans in the coming months, as it is our main objective to be a voice for emerging talent on the National and International landscape, promoting emerging talent, enabling them to build their profile, says Dave. If you missed last years festival we have a selection of wining and shortlisted films launching in our Fingal Film Roadshow at various Art House Venues in Ireland this year, go to our website for up and coming schedule dates .
