In Short with the Experts

Workshops and masterclasses with leading industry professionals have always been a welcome feature of our festival. Although Covid-19 has seen us having to put these on hold for now, we are delighted to be able to provide a virtual alternative at FFF 2021.

This year’s festival will take place online

Our aim is to promote, encourage, educate and develop the talents of young promising and established filmmakers, directors, producers and writers. With this in mind and the fact that we will be hosting a virtual festival this year, we have returned to our roots by making FFF 2021 “All about the short”.

A whopping 350 short films will be available to view for five days at the end of May, from the comfort of your home. The line-up will also include the Puttnam Award Pitch, In Short Mini Tutorials by experts in the film industry, screenings of the shortlisted and winning films and the Award Ceremony hosted by Gerrard Stembridge.
Technology is providing an excellent alternative, helping us bring FFF to a worldwide audience and most importantly all events free of charge.

We expect normal service will resume in May 2022 and hope to see you in person in Schull.
