#Festival: Short film selection announced for Dingle International Film Festival 2018

The Dingle International Film Festival today has announced the short film listing for their 2018 festival. Dingle’s 12th annual celebration will showcase 60 national and international films from 22 – 25 March.

This coming March, the festival will host a wonderful selection from local, emerging talent. The programme “Kerry in Film” will exhibit premiere screenings of Fiona Ní Ghrifín’s An tAthair Ó FiannachtaThe Rogue by Arjen Sinninghe Damsté, Word of Mouth from Ben Kavanagh and Coyote by Dani Wall.

Newly funded shorts from The Irish Film Board/ Bord Scannán na hÉireann will be screened in St. James’s Church, home to our shorts filmmakers during the festival. As part of this exciting line up, Take Me Swimming, written by Ailbhe Keoghan and shot by Michael Kelly, includes a Dingle cast.

Overall, an exceptional programme of quality short film from here in Ireland and around the world will be exhibited in St. James’s Church. We are extremely proud to programme such an ecclectic selection of films from our open submissions and with the participation of The Irish Film Board.
