Films 2013!

The results are in! ( final shortlist published at 6 AM on 14th of March GMT )

Thanks to everyone who submitted their films to Freshly Squeezed Film Festival 2013. We received over 200 submissions this year, and cutting them down to the final 25 was not the easiest task, however we are very excited about the quality of our shorts this year and hopefully so are you!

The compilation of this shortlist involved around 10 different impartial shortlist judges from both the festival circles and outside, involving young media professionals aged 23 to 35 whose task was to rate the films considering their cinematic value, technicality, originality, visual language and narrative. The top 50 was then assessed by Piret Saar (Director), Liam Yelen (Submissions Coordinator) and Catarina Doolan Fernandes (General Manager) who decided on the final programme considering genre, quality and cultural significance, in order to compile an interesting and diverse screening programme of the best students films with no equal among Irish film festivals.

Congratulations if your film was selected! If not, we might be able to provide you with some feedback if you wish to enquire.

If your film was selected, please find the shortlist submission form below which needs to be returned to us with a copy of your film by Monday 15th of April. Submission form has more information about the technical requirements for submission.

The shortlist is presented in a random order.
