Films are screened in every corner of the village - in marquees, a bookshop, art gallery, village hall, on local islands and in numerous local pubs and restaurants. Great family entertainment.

The Corona Fastnet Short Film Festival is an 'up-close and personal' festival, where the audience, young filmmakers, internationally renowned directors, producers, and invited guest speakers all share the same space. The event hosts screenings, Q&As, premieres, workshops and discussions with international experts in the film industry. High quality entertainment is provided for all the family (most of which is free).

A short film festival without a cinema, the festival uses "Distributed Cinema" - Schull's very own dedicated server to short film. The past 5 years of submitted films are available to view with a smart phone, laptop or tablet anywhere on Main Street Schull, over the five days of the festival, 24 hours a day. From a bookshop, to an art gallery, marquees, numerous local pubs and restaurants, the town hall or take the ferry to the Long Island Cinema, films are screened in every corner of the village. Truly - the village is the screen.

Guest speakers announced so far include Jim Sheridan, David Puttnam, Lenny Abrahamson, Sandy Lieberson, Greg Dyke and Carmel Winters with more experts to be announced soon.
