#Festival: Shebeen Flick – Irish Film Festival Berlin 2018 now open for submissions
Shebeen Flick, Berlin’s Irish Film Festival, is now accepting submissions from filmmakers for its 7th edition, which will take place on 15th-18th March 2018 in Moviemento Kino Berlin – Germany’s oldest cinema.
After a successful pilot screening this March in Düsseldorf, the festival also is planning a weekend-long event in the North Rhine-Westphalia capital on 10th-11th March in the Souterrain-Kellerkino.
Every March, since 2012, Shebeen Flick presents a curated programme with Irish films without distribution 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.
We had an amazing response from our first call for submissions last year and are very much looking forward to seeing what’s in store for 2018. Bringing the festival to Düsseldorf gives us an amazing opportunity to widen the reach of Irish Cinema within Germany.

All submitted films will be considered for the programme in both cities. Both feature and short length films (live action, documentary, animation, music videos) are accepted. 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.
