Welcome to the 7th Annual Waterford Film Festival
8th -10th of November 2013
Wow time has flown since last year and it is hard to believe we are now in our 7th year. Once again we have had an amazing response from filmmakers and writers. Films have been coming in from near and far.
We have received submissions from, Ireland, UK, France, Germany, Spain, Romania, Italy, Hungry, USA and Canada. There is such a large amount of quality work out there. Every year we find it very hard to decide out of the several hundred submissions on which ones to select in both films and screenplays.
This year there is a great mix of films that will be screened at the festival. Every year we try to balance out between first time filmmakers to professionals and award winning films.
You will see films from local and national filmmakers to international filmmakers. There is a great blend of dramas, comedies, animation, thrillers and documentaries.
This year we would like to welcome a new sponsor, The Granville Hotel. The Granville will be hosting for all of the film screenings and we are delighted to be there. We have a few slight changes in the programme schedule but this year we will have four short film programmes.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the team at Greyfriars who have been hosting the festival for past several years. They have always done a fantastic job and have been a great support to the festival. Greyfriars will continue to host some events for the festival in the lines of workshops through FilmLab.
Also we would thank once again our Core Funders, Waterford City Council, and all our sponsors for their continued belief in and support of the festival.
