To celebrate International Women’s Day, as well as our members’ wonderful short films, WFT Ireland, is partnering with the IFI, to host our annual Short Film Showcase. This special screening of members’ work will take place on Wednesday 6th March 2019.
Submit your short film now for this special showcase and you can be in with the chance of winning the grand prize (worth over €200).
We want your film!
The deadline for submissions is 20th February 2019 at 5pm. There is no submission fee to enter your film, you just need to be a current WFT Ireland member.
We hope to screen as many as possible, but there may not be time to screen all the films we receive. In that case we have some judging criteria which includes production values, women on the crew, feminist theme/narrative, quality of vision and writing.

- The short film must have been made in the LAST TWO YEARS, ie. between 1st Jan 2017 – 5th Feb 2019.
- The film must be 15 MINS OR UNDER. This include the credits. Films longer than this can’t be considered as time slots are limted.
