Dublin International Short Film and Music Festival celebrates the artistic, educational and historical importance of short films and music.

DISFMF is the largest independent short film festival in Dublin, in 2019 we are celebrating the 8th anniversary.
In 2018 we screened 116 short films from all over the world, the festival has brought established, emerging and award-winning filmmakers to the public attention.

Dublin, capital of the Republic of Ireland, is on Ireland’s east coast at the mouth of the River Liffey. Its historic buildings include Dublin Castle, dating to the 13th century, and imposing St Patrick’s Cathedral, founded in 1191. City parks include landscaped St Stephen’s Green and huge Phoenix Park, containing Dublin Zoo. The National Museum of Ireland explores Irish heritage and culture.

We are an independent film festival and DISFMF is conducted from the independent film maker point of view, we don’t spend half of our budget inviting any big stars but we want every film maker attending the festival to feel like a star because they are the ones who worked hard to see the projects ready.
Director and producer from each film selected will benefit free entry to all the venues and screenings.
