Sky Road TV & Film Festival is a new festival which takes place this September 5th – 7th in the Station House Theatre, in Clifden, Co Galway.

One of the organisers is a former colleague of mine from my days with TG4 and he reached out to me recently for some support so I Skyped him for more info:

Unfortunately I won’t be able to attend but I do think the festival is worthy of a mention…
not least for the fact that they have 3 mobile categories for which they are currently seeking submission (Ireland only).

Their website has this to say:

The festival will work closely with producers and broadcasters to bring the latest content in Irish cinema and television, in both Irish & English language to the programme. The goal is to engage with filmmakers by providing a platform for discussion regarding media, trends and finance options available.

The festival has now announced its submission categories. They are as follows:

FILM

  • Best Feature Film
  • Best Short Film

TELEVISION

  • Best Feature Documentary
  • Best Short Documentary
  • Best Documentary Series

NEW MEDIA (Media filmed on a smart device)

  • 10 Second Short: Shot and Edited on Mobile under 10 seconds
  • 1 Minute Short: Shot and Edited on Mobile under 1 minute
  • 3 Minute Short: Shot and Edited on Mobile under 3 minutes

So if you are a budding mojo in print, radio, television, online or freelance and you have a story shot on a mobile device that qualifies for one of the three mobile categories, get your submission in now.

The process simply involves uploading your piece to YouTube or Vimeo and pasting the Url and some other info into the submission page on their website!

You can get updates via their Website or Twitter: @SkyRoadFilm
