Short Grass Film Festival

Short Grass Film Festival

Over the last decade, Kildare County Council have funded a diverse range of films through the Short Grass Films bursary awards and film commission. 

The repertoire includes short film, animation, documentary, drama as well as feature length films, many of which have received national and international accolades. Kildare Short Grass Films have supported the making of films on location in Kildare and film makers from the county.

The Kildare Short Grass Film Festival is jam packed with film screenings.

The festival will appeal to movie buffs and film makers at all stages of their career.
