MISSION & OBJECTIVE

Kerry Film Festival proudly supports emerging talent and is at the forefront of bringing films and filmmakers to Ireland and creating an international audience for Irish filmmakers.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

The Kerry Film Festival (KFF) will run from 21st - 25th October 2015. Now in its sixteenth year KFF brings films and filmmakers from around the globe to one of the world's most beautiful locations. With a rich and varied film history the delightfully scenic Kingdom of Kerry, which is located on the beautiful South West Coast of Ireland, has starred in Oscar winning classic films like David Lean's Ryan's Daughter and inspired films like Jim Sheridan's The Field.

The main feature of KFF is a short film competition which provides a platform for young filmmakers seeking exposure for their work and with winning filmmakers getting a chance to screen in partner festivals around the globe there's a lot for filmmakers to get excited about!

Past adjudicators of the Kerry Film Festival Short Film Competition have included such luminaries as Jeremy Irons, Liam Neeson, Mike Leigh, Jim Sheridan, Gabriel Byrne, Cillian Murphy and Paul Greengrass.

The Festival recognises film as an innovative and exciting art medium. KFF takes place right across the County of Kerry creating one of the most geographically widespread forums for film in Europe with screenings taking in Tralee, Killarney, Listowel, Dingle, Killorglin, Kenmare and Waterville.
