The Waterford Film Festival was established in 2007 by local filmmaker Stephen Byrne. His objective was to bring something new to Waterford’s arts and cultural scene, promoting local, national filmmakers and writers, but in particular independent film. For the past eight years the festival has screened hundreds of films from filmmakers around the world as well as promoting writers with the short screenplay competition.
Filmmakers from across Ireland, UK, France, Germany, Holland and as far as Canada and USA have attended Waterford Film Festival. The festival is now in its 9th year and Garter Lane Arts Centre will be hosting the event from Friday 6th to Sunday 8th November. For the second year in a row filmmakers and festival goers will see the films screened on a full sized cinema screen, with dolby surround sound. Waterford Film Festival will be held from Friday 6th November 2015 | Sunday 8th November 2015 and the Programme is now on line.
