The screenings will take place on the first Monday of each month and will be followed by a selected question and answer session. There will also be a full bar with special drinks offers all night.

Director, Chris Cronin said:

“They only pick the best films for their screenings so it’s not only a great festival to enter but a great film night to attend.

“I’ve enjoyed every film I’ve seen so far.”

Films included in the first half of the festival will be nominated for the People’s Choice Award, which will be voted for by audiences on the night, with votes calculated collectively from all of the venues that are screening that month.

The second half of the festival will be dedicated to the Feature Short, a film no longer than 50 minutes, which will be the headliner for the event. The film will also be awarded the Directors Choice Award by the festival’s judging panel.
