Waterfords 6th Annual Film Festival 9th to the 11th of November

This year the Judges had many, many films to watch and screenplays to read as there was an increase of submissions this year, up by 25% from last year. We saw a large amount of high quality projects from filmmakers from around the World.
It is never easy for the judges to decide on what projects make it to the festival but this year has been the toughest yet. We try our best to have a fair balance/mix of films with different genres, from 1st time filmmakers to award winners.

This year we have a fantastic mix of films. Films from Ireland, UK, France, Germany, Greece, Canada and the USA will screen at the festival. There will be something for everyone!

Also this is the 5th year of the screenplay competition and we read some amazing screenplays from beginners to professionals. The winner will be announced at 8pm on Sunday the 11th of November. The award will come with a cash prize of 500 Euros and will also include 5 days’ worth of filming equipment and 5 days access to editing facilities from FILMLAB.

We would also like to thank everyone who submitted their films to us and we wish them all the best of luck with their projects.
