THE FINGAL FILM & ARTS FESTIVAL

The Fingal Film Festival was launched in 2012. We offer a platform encouraging and promoting the works of Local/National/ International emerging filmmakers.

We showcase their work in an environment where they have access to experienced industry professionals.

WE PROVIDE:

Workshops

 Training Programmes

Independent Film Screenings (from around the globe)

Live Music

Stand Up Comedy Artists

The Wright Venue will supply full bars until late. Food is also available from various vendors all throughout the three day outdoor festival this year. At least 25% of our festival schedule is dedicated to Foreign films and 10% Gaeilge, which broadens the film culture experience to all who attend the screenings.

Although the festival has seen a significant audience growth over the last few years, we believe it is our responsibility (as festival organisers) to ensure we reinvent ourselves!

We will do this by attracting larger audiences with a bigger venue this year Swords Castle Co Dublin. We are revamping the annual format to raise awareness of independent films and attract more festival goers.

We ensure that all our participating filmmakers work is exposed to a wider demographic.

A film event on its own alienates an audience, as they feel it’s for experienced filmmakers and filmgoers alike.

Everybody loves film and our aim is to expose audiences to the Independent film concept, in a fun packed weekend.

 

FESTIVAL REVIEWS

“Fingal Film Festival was an absolute pleasure to be part of. It’s pretty clear that Fingal’s dedicated staff and volunteers love films as much as the filmmakers submitting them. Without reservation, I highly recommend submitting to Fingal, it’s a festival that will no doubt grow each year. ”

-Mar Garvey, producer Atlantic 2016 festival

Baby Driver is an instant classic - Film In Dublin

Finally

If Baby Driver were a car, it would be a Rolls Royce – flashy maybe, but with enough substance to guarantee its status as a classic.
