The Limerick Film Festival is back! Now in its sixth year, the LIT-founded three-day event has grown in size and reputation – attracting hundreds of filmmakers and visitors from home and abroad. Countries such as USA, Canada, Japan, Belgium, France, Israel and Spain have been represented since its inception.

The Limerick Film Festival team is excited to be bringing professional filmmakers, actors, producers, directors and many more to the city in April 2015. The continued focus on expanding the festival in and around the city remains. The Short Film Awards Show will give the filmmaking talent of Limerick a chance to show off their skills to a wider national and international audience.




Entry Forms and Competition details can now be found on the website

The planning for the festival’s schedule is well underway, with an official launch scheduled for early 2015. Previous years’ speakers have included top Irish comedian and producer, Pat Shortt and the highly respected Irish Producer, Lelia Doolan; as well as Director Pat Comer, Editor Nathan Nugent and writer Rob Crawley. High calibre industry workshops will also be on offer in 2015, including master classes by the festival sponsors and touch-and-try demonstration events.

The festival culminates with the highly anticipated Short Film Awards Show at the Millennium Theatre. The ceremony will be recorded by Video and Sound Technology students of LIT and also streamed live on the website. Further information can be found on
