#Festival: Shebeen Flick Irish Film Festival Berlin 2017 is now open for submissions
Shebeen Flick, Berlin’s Irish Film Festival, is for the first time accepting submissions from filmmakers for its 6th edition, which will take place on 16th-19th March 2017 in Moviemento Kino Berlin – Germany’s oldest cinema.
Since 2012, every March, Shebeen Flick gives Berliners the chance to see a curated programme with Irish films that have not yet been distributed in Germany alongside some favourite Irish classics. The festival has become an integral part of the St. Patrick’s celebrations in the German capital and a must-go to event for film buffs and Irish culture lovers. All films are shown in the English language.
Commenting on the news, Shebeen Flick’s Founder & Director Fernanda Parente, said
We are delighted to open for submissions for the first time. Since it’s foundation, the festival has been growing organically and we felt now is the right time to expand the scope and reach of our programme. I am very much looking forward to discovering new gems of Irish cinema.
All formats will be accepted including both feature and short length films – live action, documentary, animation and music videos. Productions may originate from anywhere in the world. Eligible films may be made by an Irish filmmaker, a filmmaker working in Ireland or a filmmaker of Irish heritage. If the filmmaker is not Irish, the content needs to focus on an Irish subject matter.
Submissions will be accepted via FilmFreeway only. For full details on how to submit visit the site. The early-bird round of submissions closes on 14th December 2016.
