Lovely festival, great communication from the start and really well organised.   

They really care about the filmmakers and respect their projects.

Great festival.  Selected films are eligible for nomination at an annual awards event, which is going from strength to strength.  Has become a major fixture on the Irish film calendar.

Fantastic film festival. A really special event. The monthly screening bring together loads of film makers and is a great chance to network. The awards night is just fantastic. Brilliantly ran.
