Speaking about next years festival Managing Director Liz Kenny said 'this year we expect to attract filmmakers in the thousands to the event as the Fingal Film Festival has now found its feet and understands what works best for us, after a wonderful year of learning from our 2012 Festival, which was a huge success. The 2013 festival schedule is guaranteed to wet the appetite of both established and aspiring filmmakers alike'.

Fingal Film Festival are calling upon all filmmakers from all over the world to submit their latest work including Art house Features and Shorts, Feature Films, Documentary Features, short Films, short Doc's Animations and any original work from emerging and established  filmmakers.
