Limerick Institute of Technology’s Audio Video Department, in conjunction with The Gathering 2013, are delighted to announce the 4th LIT Film Festival to promote video and film production in the mid-west region of Ireland, running from 11th to 13th April 2013.

Following the massive response to the 2012 event, the festival organisers have decided to extend the invitation to our Irish ex-pats to contribute their short films to the competition.  The invitation is also there for those who enter to return to our shores in the spirit of ‘The Gathering 2013’ campaign and enjoy all the festival has to offer including:

  • Professional equipment and industry workshops
  • Film screenings
  • Guest speaker talks and Keynote speeches
  • The now renowned  Short Film Awards Night

As always the Short Film Competition is open to filmmakers of all levels from beginner through to 2nd and 3rd level students as well as professionals. There will be categories for all and a chance for everyone to network and share ideas.

New additional sponsors are joining the festival this time around and we are delighted to announce Canon Ireland and Whelan Cameras Limerick are on board. To start their contribution to the film festival, Canon Ireland and Whelan Cameras will hold a special EOS Camera workshop on October 25th at LIT, details of which will be announced in the coming days.

‘Canon in partnership with Whelan Cameras are proud to announce sponsorship of LIT Film Festival, as part of their continued support of the Visual Arts in Limerick. In addition to sponsoring a prize Canon & Whelan Cameras have confirmed that they will provide an industry professional as guest speaker. Canon & Whelan Cameras look forward to their ongoing support to LIT student filmmakers throughout the upcoming academic year.

As always we are grateful to all our sponsors for their continued support.
