"Amazing Festival! A beautiful celebration of awesome films"
Welcome to the 14th Waterford Film Festival Special Virtual Edition. This Year is a strange and challenging time for us all and we hope you are all keeping safe. Due to Covid restrictions and the sad and unfortunate news that our host venue Central Arts had to close their doors permanently, this year's Festival will be exclusively online. The team is saddened that we will not get to meet all of the filmmakers, writers, fans, sponsors & supporters in person this year. That being said, we are delighted to be in a position to present a virtual Festival full of creativity and high-quality films from debut filmmakers to award winning films. This year the Festival team have reviewed hundreds of projects from 27 countries around the globe and in this year's programme 15 countries will be represented. In total over 100 selected short films will be presented and the Festival will also be awarding 40 National and International writing finalists in our screenplay competition. The overall winners of the film and screenplay competitions will be announced on Sunday the 22nd of November on Facebook. An extra day has also been added this year and films will remain on our platform until Midnight on Monday 23rd of November. The Festival team always encouraged filmmakers to have social meetups/ gatherings during the Festival weekend. Since it is not possible this year, we will also be hosting online networking meetups for filmmakers and writers instead. The Festival team would like to thank all of our sponsors, supporters, filmmakers and writers who contributed towards making this event happen! We hope that live screenings will return in the not too distant future. For now, you can enjoy a wide range of short films, dramas, thrillers, comedies, horrors, music and documentaries from the comfort of your own home.
