IFI Stranger Than Fiction: Dates & Call for Submissions

The IFI Stranger Than Fiction Documentary Festival is moving to 18th-21st June 2009 from its previous calendar position in September and the programmers are looking for submissions of short documentary films (maximum of 15 minutes) in the following categories for possible inclusion in the festival:

Short Irish Films
Short International Films

Submissions should be addressed to: Submissions Co-Ordinator, Stranger Than Fiction, Irish Film Institute, 6 Eustace Street, Dublin 2, Ireland. Submissions must arrive before the final closing date of 4th May 2009 with the non-refundable entry fee of €25 in order to be considered for inclusion in the festival (Early Bird Special! Entry is free if submissions are received by the 1st April 2009). The judges will present an award for Best Film in both categories.

Having just seen a preview of the fantastic ‘Anvil – The Story Of Anvil‘ at the IFI, we at State reckon it’s time that some Irish music documentary makers got in on the act.
