October Bank Holiday Weekend (24th - 27th) 2024

Summer Holidays

We will be laying low for the next couple of months. There may be some summer showings, but as of yet nothing in the diary. If we plan to screen a film, we'll pop you an email, if you're on the list. If you're NOT on the list, may we suggest you add your email address below in the "subscribe" box ? If you don't want to subscribe, keep your eye on Facebook, X and Instagram for updates.

This year, in the Courthouse and the Old Post Office, we will present and celebrate our 22nd annual film festival.

Short Film Competition

A highlight of our festival weekend is our competition of short fiction, short documentary, and short animation. To submit a short film, click here which will bring you to the Film Freeway Website which we use to process all submissions.

Short Film Commission

We also commission a short film ourselves each year, and if you THINK you have what it takes please apply and lets see what happens.

Soliciting a savvy social sharing scheme

We all know that word of mouth is the very best form of recommendation. People take you at your word and go with that advice. We want to enjoy the benefit of the glowing recommendations we have heard so many of you say, so please take a few minutes to share those utterances with your friends. 

  • WHAT WILL ‘SHARING’ DO FOR CLONES FILM FESTIVAL? Simply put, if we can keep our promotional cost to a minimum, this enables our team to bring our audiences more films. We hear you say "WHAT CAN I DO TO HELP?" Well, we're glad you asked, as simply "LIKING" is not enough. Here's a list of things that you could do to help:
  • Share our Facebook entries on your timeline
  • Comment on our Facebook entries
  • Mention a friend’s Facebook name if you think they might be interested in a comment or a film
  • Share Clones Film Festival’s website by copying and pasting the following URL: http://www.clonesfilmfestival.com/ in your "Facebook status"
  • Go on, go ahead - just "Like" something on our Facebook page Did we mention the importance of "Sharing"?

We have added a ticket purchasing facility to our website.  This means that you will be able to "Share" a screening you would like to go to with a friend and they too can buy a ticket. Or if you see a listing for a film that a friend was talking about, then go ahead, SHARE it with them. We're guessing that if you've read this far, you realise that our general wish is that you "share" our stuff.
