Kerry Film Festival is back with a week-long celebration of film, from the 4th-11th October. This year the adjudicators that will have the difficult task of judging this year’s Kerry Film Festival short film competitions are Mark Bomback, Niall Byrne, Rory Fellowes, Guy Lodge and Rod Stoneman.
“We’re thrilled to welcome such a wonderful panel to this year’s special anniversary Festival” said Festival Director Roisin McGuigan. “From renowned screenwriter Mark Bomback, to widely experienced animator Rory Fellowes, we will also be welcoming former Chief Executive of the Irish Film Board and documentarian Rod Stoneman and Film Critic Guy Lodge. Finally, with our new short film category, Best Score, we have invited IFTA winning composer Niall Byrne as the final member of our judges’ panel. Everyone at KFF is extremely grateful that the adjudicators recognise the importance and effort taken by our short film finalists and we thank them for kindly offering their time and knowledge to our festival.”
