Shebeen Flick, Berlin’s Irish Film Festival, is now accepting submissions from filmmakers for its 8th edition, which will take place on 13th-16th March 2019 in Moviemento Kino Berlin – Germany’s oldest cinema.

Since 2012, every March Shebeen Flick presents a curated programme with Irish films without distribution in Germany alongside some favourite Irish classics. The festival has become an integral part of the St. Patrick’s celebrations in the German capital and a must-go to event for film buffs and Irish culture lovers.

“This will be the third year accepting submissions for the festival and we are very excited to announce a new category: virtual reality. In addition, I would like to encourage female filmmakers to submit to the festival as one of our main goals is to achieve gender balance in the programme. I am looking forward to watching the submissions for 2019!” said Shebeen Flick’s Founder & Director Fernanda Parente.

Both feature and short length films (live action, documentary, animation, music videos) are accepted, as well as the newly added category virtual reality. Productions may originate from anywhere in the world. Eligible films may be made by an Irish filmmaker, a filmmaker working in Ireland or a filmmaker of Irish heritage. If the filmmaker is not Irish, the content needs to focus on an Irish subject matter.

Submissions will be accepted via FilmFreeway only. For full details on how to submit visit
