The Richard Harris Film Festival have announced the first year of their Irish short film competition which is in conjunction with the Newport Beach Film Festival. The Richard Harris International Film Festival 2014 invites filmmakers to submit short films, of no more than 15 minutes, for consideration.
The selected films will be screened during the festival on Saturday the 25th of October, 2014. These films will also be considered for the Newport Beach Film Festival 2015.
One of them will then be selected to screen at the 16th Newport Beach Film Festival in April 2015.
The Newport Beach Film Festival has the largest shorts program within a major film festival in the United States. The festival screens over 200 short films in over 25 programs. This is a fantastic opportunity for Irish filmmakers to screen their film in the heartland of the American film industry in one of the most prestigious film festivals in North America.
