Short Film Showcase
To celebrate International Women’s Day 2020, as well as our members’ wonderful short films, WFT Ireland will once again be running our annual Short Film Showcase.

Submit your short film now for this special showcase and you can be in with the chance of winning a very special bursary to support your next film to the value of €1,000 courtesy of the Dublin Feminist Film Festival*! 

We want your film!

The deadline for submissions is 20th January 2020 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 will not be time to screen all the films we receive, in which case we have some judging criteria which includes production values, women on the crew, feminist theme/narrative, quality of vision and writing.

Submission Criteria:

  • The person submitting the short film MUST be a current WFT Ireland member. You can join WFT Ireland or renew your membership here.
  • If you are the WFT member submitting a short, you must be the film’s Director, Writer, Producer or DOP.
  • The director of the short film MUST be female.
  • Documentary, Experimental, Narrative or Animation films are all welcome.
  • The short film must have been made in the LAST TWO YEARS, ie. between 1st Jan 2018 – 10th Jan 2020.
  • The film must be 15 MINS OR UNDER. This includes the credits. Films longer than this can’t be considered as time slots are limited.
  • If you are submitted more than one film, create a seperate entry each time.
