More International Entries


As more and more entries have come into the offices over the past few weeks, we are continuing to see an increase in international entries. Non more so than from our closest neighbour Great Britain.

The quality of the films has again been raised to a new bar with the genres being very mixed along with the stories.

If you have completed a short film in the past 12 months or are close to completing one and it is within the 20 min duration then why not enter it into this years Limerick Short Film Awards at this year festival. The details can be found HERE on our Entry Forms Page.

The Deadline is March 6th with the short list to be announced on or around March 21st.

The Festival takes place between April 23rd to 25th with the awards show on the Saturday night the 25th at the Millennium theatre. The show is also streamed live so if you can’t make the journey to our great city then you can still catch the show online.

Looking forward to receiving your entries and hopefully seeing you at the Festival.
