"The finalist films selected from the schedule are incredible, we had three times
the amount of films submitted last year and the shortlisting has been very tough.
We are happy with the final selection and believe there is something for everyone
in this years schedule. We are being quite specific in our 2013 schedule layout,
ensuring we cater for all age demographic, making the festival more accessible for
people who just want to see a good film." says Creative Director, Dave Byrne.

"The final selection of films are from all over the world. We had a huge response
internationally this year. We have also had a huge response from Irish Media
colleges this year, as we made it a priority to engage with film students and

protect the public’s
access to independent
film and TV programs
