Alert your nearest filmmaker immediately


The Dublin International Film Festival (DIFF) is now accepting short film submissions for next year's festival.

To be eligible for submission, your short must be a maximum of 30 minutes in length, it must be completed by January 1, 2015, it may originate from anywhere in the world but it must have English subtitles, and the project must be a premiere in Dublin (films available publicly online will not be accepted).


Established in 2003, DIFF has quickly become Ireland's premier feature film festival and takes place in Ireland's capital city over the course of eleven days each spring.

The festival is a celebration of international cinema, exciting new Irish film, and screenwriting. It's also platform for Q&As and panels where Irish filmmakers have learned from cinematic legends like Ben Affleck, Quentin Tarantino, Bryan Cranston, Amy Schumer, Bill Hader, Judd Apatow and Ennio Morricone.
