OFFline Film Festival
October 7 @ 10:00 AM .October 11 @ 8:00 PM
OFFline Film Festival is an exciting event for film lovers and makers alike. Irish and international films are screened in an array of quirky venues around the town to enthusiastic audiences.
Every year short films from all over the world are entered into our short film competition. Prizes include Best Irish Short which wins a guaranteed distribution deal to over 80 official film clubs across Ireland; Best International Short and the Audience Award.
The festival also includes workshops on aspects of film-making given by industry professionals. One of the most fun & exciting aspect of OFFline is the 57hour filmmaking challenge where teams of filmmakers shoot and edit a short film in Birr in a matter of days, often enlisting the help of locals in front of and behind the cameras. These films are submitted to a panel of judges and screened to the public on the final day with the winning short bagging a screening slot at Oscar qualifying Galway Film Fleadh.
