Festival Overview

OFFline Film Festival is an exciting event for film lovers and makers alike. Irish and international films are screened in an array of quirky venues around the town to enthusiastic audiences.

The festival also includes workshops on all aspects of film-making given by industry professionals. One of the most exciting aspect of OFFline is the short film-making challenge where teams of film-makers make and edit a short film in Birr in a matter of days, often enlisting the help of locals in front of and behind the cameras. These films are submitted to an international panel of judges and screened to the public on the final day with the winning short bagging a generous cash prize.


Every year we accept short films from all over the world to be entered into our short film competition. Prizes include Best Irish Short which wins a guaranteed distribution deal to over 80 official film clubs across Ireland; Best International Short and the Audience Award.
