An independent short film festival screening films in all sorts of weird and wonderful locations. The event focuses on the craft of film with participation from industry experts from all over the world.

The Corona Fastnet Short Film Festival is an 'up close and personal' five day festival, where the audience, young filmmakers, internationally renowned directors, producers, and invited guest speakers all share the same space. Throughout the village of Schull, the festival hosts screenings, Q&A's, premieres, workshops and discussions with international experts in the film industry. Over the weekend, the Family Fringe provides high quality entertainment for all the family, most of which is free. With live music, parties, quizzes and cafe viewing of shorts and feature length films night and day, you will always want to return to the beautiful seaside town of Schull.

A short film festival without a cinema, this festival uses Distributed Cinema, Schull's very own dedicated server to short film. The past six 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. Take a break and Lie down at the Lido - rest on one of the colourful beanbags to enjoy the Ceiling Cinema. Truly, our village is our screen.
