iffy is the bite-size film festival on the Liffey in Dublin, showcasing the best of Irish and International independent short film

iffy, the short film festival on the Liffey have announced a dazzling array of short films for their 4th edition on Saturday 23rd of November at The Pearse Centre Theatre, Dublin 2 and tickets are now on sale.

The bi-annual festival is known for its carefully created and easily digestible programme of short films and forging an intimate and relaxed vibe which allows the audience to mingle and chat about the films they have seen over a glass of wine.

This edition sees a fascinating and eclectic selection of ten short films, eight of which are from Ireland. Also screening is a French Canadian animation and a wonderful experimental piece from North Carolina USA.

“It's a very interesting lineup. Lots of interpretative dance and female writers & directors - selected without any express intention.
We present a brilliant collection of strange and wonderful sights and sounds. From dancing with dead bodies to hiding them, November’s show is going to be a wonderful mix of shorts that will entertain and delight in equal measure”
Duncan McKenna, Festival Organiser and Programmer

The short films this year include the multiple award-winning surreal comedy “Mother” written by Jonathan Hughes and directed by Natasha Waugh. Also featuring is the fascinating “Five Letters to the Stranger Who Will Dissect my Brain” by award-winning writer/director Oonagh Kearney. This film won Best Irish Short Film at the Dublin International Film Festival this year.

The full programme can be found on the iffy website.
