Category Rules

Filmmakers in the Comedy (Over 18) category must be over 18 on the final date of late accepted entries, 14th February 2015.

Your film MUST be uploaded to our Technical Director, Martin Levis for judging. It is also very important to upload your press-kit to WAB, with photos and information, as we try to choose the festival's poster and programme image from the competition films' artwork, with the filmmaker's permission. Please include a short synopsis of your film (between 10-15 words ONLY) for use in our programme.

We will contact filmmakers whose films have been selected for viewing at our festival before 30th April 2015.

Filmmakers who enter their film into the "Comedy" category and have their film selected are automatically entered into the Best of Festival International competition, which carries a prize of € 2,000.

If the director of the film is Irish, or if the film was shot in Ireland with an Irish production company, the film will be considered for the Best Irish Short Film prize, which also carries a prize of €1,250.
