About Us


DISFMF is an independent festival dedicated to bring together film makers and musicians from around the world in a forum to celebrate short films and music.

The goal of the festival is to show variety of all genres, drama, comedies, animations, documentaries, music videos, narrative stories and horror.

Our aim is to build cultural bridges and network capabilities between the most talented filmmakers and musicians from around the world. Dublin is the most populous city in Ireland and also a multicultural capital with great venues and great people.

Every year the festival is held in the beginning of October

Festival dates in 2019 are 4th-6th of October and will take place in three main venues, The Generator , Cineworld for the short films screenings and The Sugar Club for the awards ceremony on the 6th of October.

2018 we had over 600 submissions and we have selected 116 shorts from all over the world.

The actual awards are paintings made by Pratima Gungados, a talented Dublin based artists from Mauritius and the value of each painting is priceless.

In 2017-2018 on Filmfreeway the festival was voted in the first 100 out of 7000 festivals due to reviews.
