Call for Irish Feature Documentaries

DOAC photo1The Guth Gafa International Documentary Film Festival is asking Irish filmmakers to submit their feature documentaries for consideration for our 9th festival which will take place in Kells, County Meath from October 2nd to 4th 2015.

Over the 8 past years, Guth Gafa has screened many multi-award winning Irish documentaries, such as His and Hers, Colony and the The Pipe, amongst others. Last year, we screened Blood Fruit, Dreams of a Clown, La Violencia and The Stranger, all of which added something special to our overall program.

The best Irish feature documentaries submitted this year will be screened alongside our international films, and the call for all Irish filmmakers to submit feature docs is open from now until midnight Friday August 22nd.

Guth Gafa will accept any Irish feature documentaries on any human rights, social action and environmental issue subjects, completed since January 2014 and that have not yet been broadcast. Submission is completely free and online and the submission form can be accessed at this link –

The Irish program is a critical part of Guth Gafa’s success. Every year we show award-winning docs from around the world, and the international directors are usually in attendance to present their work, and yet it is the Irish docs that always sell out first, and these are the films that many of our audience, including international visitors, want to see.

Guth Gafa is now recognized on the international circuit as a festival that should not be missed, so the profile of our program is high. We look forward to receiving work from Irish filmmakers, both near and far, for consideration for this year’s festival.
