Dublin Sci-Fi Film Festival opens submissions for 2018


This year saw the introduction of a new film festival in the ranks of Dublin’s long list of varied film programming. The Dublin Sci-Fi Film Festival showcased genre filmmaking new and old in Smithfield this May. Film In Dublin were happy to be in attendance at the inaugural edition of the festival, with myself serving on the jury for the festival’s shorts programme. DSFFF is looking to expand even further in 2018, and have opened submissions now to filmmakers looking to submit their science-fiction shorts and features to potentially be shown when the festival returns to Smithfield next year.

After a successful first edition, Dublin Sci-Fi Film Festival opens submissions for its 2018 festival.

The Festival is excited to continue its partnership with the two Smithfield venues that helped create such a wonderful atmosphere in May this year.  The Light House Cinema and Generator Hostel will once again pull back the curtains on an eclectic mix of Sci-Fi and Fantastic Film, with short film, features and documentaries all welcome for entry.

In particular, Dublin Sci-Fi wants to extend a warm invitation to Irish genre filmmakers.  If you dapple in the weird and wonderful, the extraterrestrial or the interdimensional, then follow the link below and get in touch.

In 2018 the Festival is looking to expand its programme, with some exciting announcements up its sleeve.

The festival will be accepting entries of both short and feature length films from Wednesday 27th September 2017 via the link below:
