2014 Short Film Judges
Our judges were set the task of judging all of the short films entered for competition in our programme, including the 48 Hour Short Film Challenge, where, once again, 5 teams undertook the challenge to direct, shoot and edit a film in the space of two days, ready to screen to the packed house at the dazzling “Francies” awards ceremony on closing night - Clones’ answer to the Oscars.
2015 will be our 8th year running this competition. Following this year's festival, we will be proud executive producers of 40 short films made in or around Clones.
